Not Communicating (Narrative Medicine Series)
Sponsored by the Gold Humanism Honor Society, the Alan Klass Health Humanities Program and the Office of Educational and Faculty Development
Dialogue, both in the workplace and in creative writing, often fails to communicate the intended message. In this session participants will purposely write dialogue that is misunderstood. The instructor will bring examples. Attendees will share some of their responses.
- Learn to communicate more effectively
- See how narrative medicine can be informed by the unconscious messages in dialogue
