The Arts in Health and Healing on Healthstyles

From The Blue Room:

This week’s Healthstyles program focuses on the use of the arts to promote health and healing. I interview three people who have been engaged in this work in the NYC metropolitan region: Joy Jacobson, Poet-in-Resident and Senior Fellow at the Center for Health, Media & Policy (CHMP) at Hunter College, City University of New York; Jim Stubenrauch, CHMP Senior Fellow; and Diane Kaufman, MD, poet and child psychiatrist at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ)– University Behavioral HealthCare at Newark, NJ, where she is also the Director of Creative Arts Healthcare.  The three discuss various forms of art that are used with patients and clinicians to foster self-healing, as well as a collaborative project on narrative writing with nurses at UMDNJ. The program airs this week on WXMR-FM (Radio Bistro at; 100.7 FM) and on WBAI-FM (; 99.5 FM in NYC on Thursday night from 11:00 to 11:30 PM).
