Speech keynote transcripts:
Living Stories of Hope and Change, How the arts, drama and story based on lived experience impacts psychiatry. Keynote highlights as delivered at The Alberta Psychiatric Association Conference, Banff
"Ms McLean's (keynote) presentation ("Living Stories of Hope and Change") addressed two questions: How can I use the creative arts to support my personal wellness?, How do the creative arts in medicine help practitioners enhance clinical and relational skills? She answered those questions in a multifaceted presentation that began with a dramatic reminiscence honoring the memory of her mother, a psychiatric nurse. Her references to the burgeoning literature about the dynamic and sometimes controversial, presence of the humanities in health care complemented the performance aspects of her presentation. For Ms. McLean, the arts and the humanities provide practitioners with a rich means to discover and re-discover the nature of healing—of our patients and ourselves."
