Workshop with Alda Correia and Maria Antónia Botelho

A few reflections regarding the modernism-creativity-mental illness relationship
Louis Sass (1994; 2001) claims schizophrenia and modernism/post-modernism are characterized by an marked hyper-reflexivity, by a turn towards interiority, and by an alienation or global disruption of the vital presence sense, regarding the I and the world. Aspects like perspectivism and relativism, the fragmentation and passivity of the I, the rejection of temporal sense or the narrative unit, among others, reveal many affinities between some distinctive schizophrenia characteristics and modern art's impulses, whose significant influence on western culture since mid 19th century has created many forms of consciousness and radically innovative ways of experiencing.
Through the deepening of some of these relationships, and the concrete examples like Baudelaire, Breton, Joyce or Magritte, it's possible to reflect on art's and creativity's role and value in health care.

Narrative education and training in nursing
Narrative education is anchored in the tradition of learning with stories through reflexion. It's a phenomological approach to nursing training centered in students' and teachers' life experience
Reading, writing, listening to and telling stories are narrative skills that contribute to a reflective practice (Charon, R.; Hermann, N.; Devlin, M J. 2016). It's how students and teachers might be able to use the narratives that will be the focus of this intervention.
