Strengthen Narrative Competency with Narrative Scribe Training

With support from the Mellon Foundation, Northwest Narrative Medicine Collaborative (NWNMC) is developing Narrative Scribe Training.

The curriculum builds on narrative medicine practices of listening and witnessing. The training develops skills of listening deeply to stories of health, illness, and healing and reflecting on how listening and witnessing can contribute to social change. Narrative Scribe Training will be held in-person on-campus at Lewis & Clark College on Saturday, February, 24 and registration is now open.
