SCS 231 - Narrative and Storytelling in Healthcare

Focusing on patient-centeredness, this course seeks to utilize storytelling and narrative as a means of intake and interviewing in healthcare. The course will examine the therapeutic aspects of storytelling and its effects on the mind-body connection. Additionally, it will analyze mutual self-disclosure, illness narratives, and the humanistic approach to healthcare. Class discussions will explore how building rapport and trust in a healthcare situation can increase the likelihood of releasing the kernel story of the patient/client. Understanding of the student’s own health and illness stories will also be explored.
