Il Pietrisco Prose: Facets of the Health Humanities

'Poetry, Voice and Storytelling in the Clinic'
by Dr Rossella M. Riccobono
April 21, 2021
6pm GMT

This second lecture of the Facets of the Health Humanities series, hosted by Il Pietrisco Prose, will see Dr Rossella M. Riccobono explore the genre of the poetic text as a tool of reflection and education for healthcare professionals. She will look at the reasons why poetry, a genre which belongs to the oral tradition, can be an ideal instrument to elicit reflection and storytelling to foster connection with patients and peers and improve the experience of the ‘cure’ within the clinic. Dr Riccobono will also reflect on innovative interdisciplinary ways of studying the ill as a minority group from the philosophy of narration viewpoint and a diversity and inclusion perspective to educate medics and healthcare professionals. Finally, she will show an example of a poetic text written by an English poet and therapist/educator who lived through the experience of cancer and left her testimony in a poetic journal, out of which she also published a poetry collection.

With the participation of ROSSELLA M. RICCOBONO. Chaired by CECILIA BEECHER MARTINS.

Il Pietrisco Prose: Facets of the Health Humanities. An Introduction.

Because of its practical and interdisciplinary nature the field of the Health Humanities is
of great interest today. So much so that many healthcare education programs have
introduced study in the arts to their curricula. Moreover, one of the areas within that
field - narrative medicine - suggests that close reading of artistic objects, reflective
writing written in the shadow of the object analyses and close reading of that reflective
writing can enhance attention, and representation skills while building affiliations with
self, patients and institutions; characteristics that the current ongoing healthcare crisis
has shown are of tremendous relevance to healthcare professionals.
But is it the same to work with a poem, or a painting; a film or a novel? What are the
differences between for instance health humanities and narrative medicine? What perspectives can Health Humanities give to disability studies? Because, at Il Pietrisco, we consider these questions need to be raised and addressed, we have set out to create a lecture cycle where experts in specific areas from lyrical texts, visual
arts and the graphic novel, film, narrative prose, fairytale, with feedback from artists
will look at these questions. 
The 17th March session introduced the subject areas and approach.
