BOOK LAUNCH PARTY for “The Principles and Practice of Narrative Medicine”

December 7, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

“The Principles and Practice of Narrative Medicine”

the-principles-and-practices-of-narrative-medicineJust published by Oxford University Press, “The Principles and Practice of Narrative Medicine” is the definitive work on the current state of the field of Narrative Medicine. Written by the founders of the field, the book articulates and embodies the complex foundations of this now internationally robust discipline.

Through inter-related chapters on social justice, liberatory pedagogy, classical Greek philosophy, phenomenology, narrative and literary theories of the acts of reading, narrative ethics, and the sources of creativity, the authors present to readers a compelling argument for the need to fortify clinical practice with the creative and narrative capacities to recognize and affiliate with individual patients and to work toward health care justice to improve the quality of health care for all.

The authors hope these essays will help our colleagues to join us in developing the conceptual and practical foundations of our shared field.
