Develop or deepen your practice in the Arts in Healthcare at the University at Buffalo
The 7th Annual Arts in Healthcare Clinical Practice Intensive program is scheduled for August 3-15, 2014. More details will be available soon.
The Arts in Healthcare Summer Intensive at the University at Buffalo is designed to provide beginning and experienced arts in healthcare students and professionals with an opportunity to explore the arts in healthcare through applied theory and practice. Participants may enroll in one of two tracks, the Advanced Clinical Practice track or the Introductory Track.
Participants in the Advanced Clinical Practice track will immerse in daily cross-disciplinary clinical practice at two area hospitals and in in-depth explorations of practice supported by current research and theory. The program will provide advanced practitioners with a uniquely enriching opportunity for professional development, inspiration, and renewal, and will deepen and expand individual clinical practice models.
Participants in the Introductory Track will explore
the applications of visual arts, writing, music, theatre, and dance in
healthcare fields and settings through hands-on studio workshops,
clinical observation, review of current literature, and discussion-based
exploration of clinical practice with advanced practitioners.
The two tracks come together each day for lectures on relevant arts in healthcare topics, "journal club" explorations of current literature, and for in-depth roundtable discussions of clinical practice based on the current clinical experiences and grounded in theory and current research.
Summer Intensive workshops will be led by Jill
Sonke-Henderson from the University of Florida Center for Arts in
Healthcare Research and Education (CAHRE) and Artists in Residence of
the Center for the Arts, University at Buffalo Arts in Healthcare
