Psychological Humanities and Narrative Medicine (PsyHuman)

University of Trento – 4 -15 July 2022

The Summer School in Psychological Humanities and Narrative Medicine (PsyHuman) is based on the idea that narrative-based, subject-centred and culture-bound approaches of the humanities and arts can complement clinical psychology and bio-medical sciences, in order to comprehend illness and trauma, to promote health and well-being, and to build inclusive societies and affective communities.

By comprising psychological, medical, scientific but also literary, cultural, aesthetic and sociological studies, the PsyHuman summer school fosters an integrated model of health promotion and a conceptualisation of the experience of illness and trauma as at once evidence-based/objective/universal and personal/subjective/unique.

It also aims at exploring the role of narrative-based and intersectional models oh healthcare in developing life skills that can be beneficial in times of strain (such as stress-coping capacity, resilience, and empathy).
