Communicating the art and science of arts-based interventions

Free to attend

Join us for the next in our series of “Discovery” public lectures. The Institute of Mental Health is delighted to welcome Sheri to explore the importance we should give to descriptions of music and arts-based interventions, and how this is essential to advancing research and the clinical use of the arts in healthcare.

Research scientists, clinicians and creative practitioners often struggle to communicate the complexities of arts-based interventions to a diverse audience of academic scholars, healthcare professionals, and consumers. Pulling from her work as a journal editor and her development of Reporting Guidelines for Music-based Interventions, Sheri will explore with audience members why arts-based interventions are especially difficult to describe, ways to improve those descriptions, and how improved reporting will advance scientific research that informs delivery and use of arts-based interventions to improve health.

Sheri L. Robb, PhD, MT-BC is a board-certified music therapist and Professor in the Indiana University School of Nursing with international recognition for her expertise in paediatric music therapy and behavioural intervention research.

Light refreshments will be available from 5.15pm, the lecture will begin at 5.45pm and will last approx. 1 hour.

The Institute has launched a new series of free public "Discovery" lectures which invite leading experts from inside and outside of the Institute to share their ideas, research findings and theories with the people of Nottingham. The lectures are open to anyone and are free to attend.
