The Royal Society for Public Health (UK) has launched a new training programme in arts and health as part of its Training Solutions programmes and courses. New Horizons is coordinated by Dr Paul M Camic, FRSPH and Professor of Psychology & Public Health at Canterbury Christ Church University, who has worked with Dr Heather Davison of RSPH to develop the programme.
New Horizons will host six all day workshops from September 2013 to April 2014 in London. Topics for the coming year include workforce development in arts and health with Mike White, Centre for Medical Humanities, Durham University; working with older people in art galleries and museums with Michelle Weiner, Dulwich Picture Gallery; singing and health with Prof Stephen Clift and colleagues from the Sidney DeHaan Centre for Arts & Health Research, Canterbury Christ Church University; developing arts and health programmes in hospitals with Guy Noble of UCL Hospitals; dance and health with Dance United; and music and mental wellbeing with senior professionals from MAC-UK and young Mini MAC Tutors.
