Lecture by Professor Rita Charon

To See the Suffering: How to Open Our Eyes to the Lives of Others

 

 

The fields of medicine, nursing, and other clinical professions are discovering that study of the arts and humanities can solve chronically intractable problems in health care. This presentation will describe ways in which  physicians, nurses, and therapists can learn to listen to patients with attention and commitment instead of with judgment and bias through creative training in writing, reading, and contact with visual and performative arts. Dr. Charon will describe some of the teaching and research underway in narrative medicine at Columbia University and elsewhere that gives us hope for moving a fragmented, impersonal health care system toward recognition, empathy, and effectiveness.
