Narrative Medicine uses storytelling to frame medical stories, for patients and for caregivers. This workshop explores the use of narrative as a bridge between lived/ traumatic raw experience and recalled/ rationalized/ tamed experience – perhaps as important to theatre as it is in medicine – using cases from life and from the literature.
