Pub Discussion

Dr Genevieve Dingle will be presenting “The Arts in Health: What is it and how do psychologists get on board?

In this talk Genevieve will discuss the arts in health and her work related to this topic. “Arts in health” refers to the use of music, art, drama writing and other forms of creative arts within hospitals and community settings. Genevieve will explore the field using examples of her projects such as School of Hard Knocks; the Live Wires Choir with retirement residents and the Mater Young Adults Health Centre. She will outline the mechanisms and effectiveness of such approaches, how you can begin to use the arts in your work, and some key points to consider.
