Health & Wellbeing

– exploring the benefits of narrative for individuals, carers & practitioners

At StoryLab we research the benefits of creative narrative practices for health and wellbeing. In particular we are interested in the power of immersive technologies to positively impact patients, practitioners and carers and promote meaningful behaviour change.

For those experiencing mental or physical main or reduced mobility, experiential stories can offer a form of respite and therapy. For medical professionals and policy-makers, innovative forms of storytelling can help them to better understand and empathise with those they look after and lead to greater effectiveness in treatment plans.

Past project collaborators include Cambridge University Hospitals, The Mayo Clinic and The Rosie Hospital, Addenbrookes.
