TEAM NARRATIVE

TEAM NARRATIVE IS A COLLECTIVE OF EDUCATORS ACROSS CLINICAL AND HUMANITIES DISCIPLINES AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO WHO OFFER LECTURES AND WORKSHOPS ON THE ROLE OF WORKING WITH STORIES IN LEARNING AND HEALTH-RELATED ENCOUNTERS.

THE GOAL OF THIS TEACHING IS TO IMPROVE   : REFLECTIVE CAPACITY, NARRATIVE COMPETENCE, VISUAL LITERACY AND CRITICAL THINKING.

TEAM NARRATIVE is a collaboration between the Health, Arts and Humanities Program and the MSPI (Mount Sinai Psychotherapy Institute). Sessions are available for  learners from all disciplines and levels of training.
