This workshop will discuss the challenges and barriers to addressing mental health and psychosocial well-being in healthcare workers and provide evidence-based practices and accessible solutions for attendees to implement in their own lives and in their organizations. Using our ability as humans to create, tell, and listen to stories, attendees will learn about the science behind narrative medicine, and how narratives can address mental health challenges and improve well-being.
Upon completion, participants will be able to identify the applicability and practicality of narrative interventions designed to improve psychosocial and organizational well-being.
Upon completion, participants will be able to proficiently engage in narrative interventions (story creation, storytelling, story listening/witnessing) to enhance the sensemaking of difficulty and connection to others.
Upon completion, participants will be able to implement narrative interventions in their department's/organization's mental health resources and policy/procedures.
