Arts and culture are increasingly recognized as catalysts to promote health and wellbeing. In my consulting practice with licensed social worker and spoken word poet Steven T. Licardi, we introduce and transfer specialized healing techniques into the education, healthcare, and arts & culture sectors.
Steven and I work via direct intervention as well as through broader initiatives. We are able to offer immediate tactical assistance in the areas of employee retention and improved patient care while developing programs for ongoing and expanded support. We custom design forums for open creative expression that increase healthcare providers’ sense of purpose, belonging, and value in and to their broader communities.
Steven and I have conducted hundreds of workshops with over two dozen healthcare organizations and institutions across the country and internationally providing arts-based healing programs, facilitating arts-based workshops, and in many cases, designing new bespoke programs with leadership.
