Abstract

This breakout session focuses on a two-year old integrative program across the fields of narrative art, healthcare, and psychology that enables patients to collaboratively develop and then record a story at the bedside. Examining these stories may enhance our collective understanding of the role creativity and human resiliency plays in sustaining and supporting personal identity in the face of illness, chronic illness, and disability. The panel discusses research findings, share audio stories recorded at the bedside, and offer a brief participative workshop, giving attendees an opportunity to experience our storytelling facilitation approach.
