About this Event

Narrative Medicine Spring Virtual Basic Workshop

March 19th-21st, 2021

Join us for our second virtual online workshop!

In light of the ongoing and necessary precautions and difficulties related to COVID-19, we will be extending the 25% discount on our usual tuition rates, in addition to our usual Early Bird Registration of $50 off the discounted tuition through March 5th!

Schedule and rates listed below.

While we hope to be able to be together in person again for future workshops, we are excited to share this learning experience for the second time in a virtual format that brings together participants from all over the world for a weekend of intensive skill-building in narrative medicine practice. The narrative medicine faculty and program directors have worked to create an intimate and immersive experience, including lectures, small group work, literature, educational and networking resources, continuing education credits, and direct interaction with narrative medicine faculty. Our format combines live virtual sessions and asynchronous learning modalities to deliver an introduction to the field that provides the same learning, connection, and transformative experience as traditional in-person workshops, while taking into consideration the fatigue and burnout of demanding virtual schedules.

We are continuing to offer a 25% percent discount on our usual tuition rates with the understanding that time and resources have increased demands during these difficult few months, as well as an early bird special of $50 off the discounted tuition for those who sign up before March 5th. With these changes our tuition rates are as follows:

  • Reduced from $1,000 to $750 for participants with income over $100,000/year ($700 with early bird discount)
  • Reduced from $850 to $637 for income between $45,000 and $100,000/year ($587 with early bird discount)
  • Reduced from $500 to $375 for income under $45,000/year ($325 with early bird discount)

An outline of our virtual weekend schedule and preparatory asynchronous materials is listed below.

Workshop Description & Objectives

Narrative medicine recognizes the aesthetic capabilities of its practitioners as fundamental instruments necessary for effective care. Acts of perception and attention ignite our narrative practice. Seeing, hearing, sensing, taking in that which we witness begins the process toward healing, and narrative medicine training attunes us to those skills within ourselves. We grow toward our own powers to attend to our patients through the schooled avenues of close reading, deep listening, and concentrated witnessing of works of art. This intensive workshop will offer rigorous skill-building in narrative competence and provides an intensive introductory experience to the methods and skills of narrative medicine. These practices are then applicable to unlimited clinical and non-clinical settings. Participants will experience plenary presentations by the founders of the Division of Narrative Medicine in both live and asynchronous formats, and will engage with faculty and each other live via Zoom for interactive presentations, Q&A, and small group work. Participants will learn effective techniques for attentive listening, adopting others’ perspectives, accurate representation, and reflective reasoning. Plenary presentations by faculty open up themes of how stories and art work, exploring concepts such as creativity, ethics, bearing witness, and empathy, while the small groups practice rigorous skills in close reading, creative writing, and responding to the writings of others.

Close reading is an integral part of the workshop as is short prompted writing and discussion. Participants will gain access to our online resources prior to the start of the workshop where all information necessary to prepare for the weekend is provided, including literary texts, film, visual art, and seminar articles in the field of narrative medicine by leading educators.

The Workshop live content will be held on Friday between 5:00pm-8:00p, Saturday between 9:30a-5p and Sunday between 9:30a-5p (all times EST). Here is the preliminary schedule and outline of asynchronous resources:
