Education

 

 

 

 

 

 

A university professor asked what is the difference between ignorance and apathy. The professor had to give an A+ to a student who answered: I don’t know and I don’t care. I want my students to know and care. I teach ICT and literacy to seniors and disabled adults.

 

GRAPHIC HARVESTING

When I am not teaching I am usually going to conferences on tech and health. I’ve noticed that a lot of very valuable information is often not utilised to maximum effect. The brainstorming session below from a UCD ENJECT conference on connected health contained an example of the patient journey. As an experienced graphic designer and pyschotherapist, I recognised that this map of the emotional, physical and financial odyssey that a patient may go on, could help other patients process their own patient journey.

 

This is info at the meeting…

This is the info laid out in a format can that be used to clearly outline the patient journey step by step.

 

TAPPING INTO TWITTER

Twitter quote cards are prepared with blank quote boxes which can be updated live at a conference using an app called phonto. This can help you bypass the sometimes limiting twitter character count and give your message the opportunity to go beyond the conference walls.

 

 

 

ART THERAPY

I am a fully accredited Pyschotherapist with www.iacp.ie.

Rogerian therapy is based on the 3 principles of…

  1. unconditional positive regard
  2. congruence
  3. empathy

It ties in nicely with the ethos of Adult Education which is based on self-actualisation.

 

Gestalt therapy reminds us that something such as a structure or experience, when considered as a whole, has qualities that are more than the total of all its parts.

I do my thing and you do your thing.
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,
And you are not in this world to live up to mine.
You are you, and I am I,
and if by chance we find each other, it’s beautiful.
If not, it can’t be helped.
(Fritz Perls, “Gestalt Therapy Verbatim”, 1969)
