HEALING OF MAGIC
Sometimes those in the health professions forget the role the arts can play in promoting and protecting human health. Over the last several decades, the arts have made a gradual entrance into the medical establishment. Spencer is recognized as the leading authority on the therapeutic use of simple magic tricks in physical and psychosocial rehabilitation. His program, Healing of Magic™, is a carefully designed, systematic approach to implementing and training therapists in this arts-integrated technique. It is an important aspect of the manner in which Spencer embraces “Arts Across the Lifespan.”
Today, the concepts of “magic therapy” are being used in more than 2,000 hospitals, rehabilitation facilities and schools in over 30 countries. Spencer has earned the Approved Providers Status of the American Occupational Therapy Association and has his Certification in Autism Studies.
Healing of Magic™ has been featured in Today in OT, the Journal of the American Medical Association, the Australian Occupational Therapy Journal, Today in PT, REHAB Today, HEALTH magazine, ADVANCE for Occupational Therapy Practitioners, and numerous other publications.
