Providers are invited to attend the well-being conference titled “Telling Your Story – A Path to Well-Being” on Friday, May 8, 2020 from 9:00-11:00 AM.
This 2-hour workshop will focus on your individual story. Through creative and scholarly texts, as well as writing prompts, we will explore story the way the scholar Louise Rosenblatt conceives it: as a complex event, akin to musical performance, reliant on the personality of the performer—you.
The conference will be led by Cate DiCharry, Director of the Writing and Humanities Program in the College of Medicine.
Participants will leave the workshop with an understanding of how creative writing and literature can be tools for well-being, empathy, diversion, joy, and, above all, a clearer understanding of the roles of story and storytelling in a medical context.
Please contact Dr. Amy Stier if you plan to attend.
