FREE Medical Narratives: A Writing Workshop for Healthcare Workers [Suzanne Edison]
What is, as Dr. Arthur Kleinman says, “the internal, felt experience of doctoring”? How can we tell “the story of what it is like to be a healer”? We will use writing as a means for self-reflection, awareness, and increasing empathy through listening and observation. We will read poems and short essays, some by other medical professionals, and use visual images as prompts for writing exercises. There will be time for discussion and a couple of short breaks.
Registration will open for this class on May 25th.
