Podcast: The Story Prescription

Health Story Collaborative explores the value of letting patients talk about their illnesses. Also: how terrorist attacks affect us.

Terrorist attacks are intended to spread fear, and psychologists have tried to study how these events affect mental health. Psychologist Samuel J. Sinclair talks about his Terrorism Catastrophizing Scale, a tool that may help explain why some people make drastic changes in their routines and attitudes after a terror attack.

And internist Annie Brewster joins the podcast from Health Story Collaborative. Since 2010 Brewster has recorded doctors, patients and caregivers at Massachusetts General Hospital and shared the stories they tell. Just the act of storytelling, says Brewster, gives patients an “authentic, meaningful and ultimately healing” way to process an illness. She shares powerful excerpts from those recordings on the program.
