The Power of Your Story: An Intro to Narrative Healthcare with Anthony Layman
June 11 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
How does your story impact your health? Anthony Layman will introduce us to the field of Narrative Healthcare — how it began, what it is, and the ways in which it can empower greater well-being. He will share recent evidence for the therapeutic benefits of this modality and how creative outlets serve both practitioners and patients. Ultimately, Narrative Healthcare is a powerful bridge between the arts and medicine. Join us for this class: free, virtual, and open to the community at large!
Anthony Layman is a graduate student in Lenoir-Rhyne University’s Masters in Fine Arts program in Writing with a Narrative Health certificate.
