Health within illness: The language of pain
Health within illness: The language of pain is a pilot study that examines the lived experience of chronic pain through arts-based methods and the role of creativity in pain management. The research project is developed in response to Trinity Laban’s Singing for Pain Management (2021) which revealed the importance of a creative arts programme that is tailored to particular health conditions. Evaluation findings highlighted that people living with chronic pain are best positioned to understand what kinds of impact are generated through creative arts engagement and how these might be evidenced.
This project works with people living with chronic pain as experts by experience. They will work alongside a Trinity Laban researcher, arts facilitator, and an occupational therapist as co-researchers. All stages of the project, from designing the research questions through to disseminating findings, will be co-determined by all those involved in the study.
The study led by Dr Rebecca Stancliffe (Trinity Laban) and starts in January 2023.
