AGO Seminars – SEEING ART AS MEDICINE

Seeing Art as Medicine

Registration Info Below-Numbers Limited

This 3-part seminar guides Medical Students and Residents in a

  • * close observation of art,
  • * group reflection, and
  • * art-making

within the Art Gallery of Ontario’s collection, to let art tell us what we need to know about seeing, witnessing and engaging in the context of care.

The gallery allows objects and images to illuminate the doctor-patient relationship in ways the clinic can’t, giving us space to question and understand our roles with one another without the pressures to know, perform, or explain.

Goals

  • * Foster cognitive skills, such as description and interpretation (and better understand the distinction between the two), critical thinking, and metacognition
  • * Sharpen technical abilities such as close observation, diagnostic acumen, pattern recognition and the perception of non-verbal cues
  • * Deepen interpersonal skills with both patients and colleagues, such as collaboration, social awareness and cultural sensitivity
  • * Nurture humanistic qualities such as tolerance of ambiguity, creativity and self-reflection
  • * Understand the role of embodied witnessing in the practice of medicine.

Presenter

Eva-Marie Stern, RP, MA, Assistant Professor U of T Dept of Psychiatry, is an art therapist, psychotherapist and educator. She co-founded WRAP in 1998 and the Trauma Therapy Program at Women’s College Hospital. Her chapter, co-authored with Shelley Wall, “The Visible Curriculum” appears in Health Humanities in Postgraduate Medical Education (Peterkin & Skorzewska, Eds, Oxford University Press, 2018), expands on how looking at and making art vitalize learning in medicine. She offers various art-based medical education initiatives in hospitals, museums and community studios.

 Biography for Dawn Lim:

 I am an emergency doctor, assistant professor of medicine, and an amateur photographer and writer based in Toronto. I enjoy weaving storytelling into my practice to help me connect to my patients. I feel storytelling builds empathy and is a great way to combine my interests in medicine and the arts. I’m particularly interested in photo-essays depicting motherhood and life in the emergency department.

Theatre of Medicine/Staging Medicine

Instructors:
Suvendrini Lena MD,MPH FRCPC Staff Neurologist CAMH
Colleen Murphy, Playwright.

2015-16 Theatre of Medicine Seminar

How does the structure and craft of great theatre work to unsettle our ideas of disease and healing?

This seminar invites residents across medical specialties to enter into the subjective experience of illness through the medium of theatre. In the Incubator at Toronto’s newly renovated Theatre Center we will read scenes from Chekhov, Shakespeare and Ibsen as well as contemporary playwrights.  As actors/reader we will enter directly into the world of – psychosis, suicide, cancer, and dementia for example – in order to see and understand these states freshly and deeply. Fuelled by this understanding we will write our own scenes with a staged reading of new work as a possible finale to the seminar.

The seminar will include Ibsen’s Enemy of the People staged at Tarragon in October 2014 and Chekhov’s The Seagull at CanStage February 2015.

The Seminar is led by Suvendrini Lena, neurologist and playwright together with renowned playwright Colleen Murphy. Murphy is a recipient of a Governor General’s Award for her play The December Man. Seminar can be taken for elective credit. Please contact course director for further details.

Participation is limited to 12-16 residents/fellows please register early.  Deadline for registration is August 30 2014.

Elective credit available.  Details may vary according to program.  Please contact course director for further information on dates/registration/location: suvendrini.lena@camh.ca
