Storytelling is an age old human trait. It used to be the only way history was passed down from generation to generation, transferring knowledge and experience of times past. But the act of telling a story goes deeper than just exchanging words, and the people at The Nocturnists are helping medical professionals tap into our inner creative expression. Creator and host Dr. Emily Silverman (@ESilvermanMD) joins the EMOE crew to talk about the value and why we all should be telling our stories.
If you are interested in some of the research on narrative medicine, here are some links that Emily mentioned during our discussion.
