 Engaging Youth in Picturing Health and its Social Determinants: A Photovoice Training Workshop

Laura will be conducting a two-day workshop hosted by The Northwestern Connecticut Area Health Education Center (NW CT AHEC) in Waterbury, Connecticut  January 10th - 11th, 2013.  The workshop covers the foundations of photovoice, a participatory action research process in which people represent their points of view and experience using photographs and narratives, often for the purpose of defining strengths and gaps in health and healthcare as they relate to participants’ daily lives and communities. The purposes of the NW CT AHEC photovoice project are to describe social determinants of health in Waterbury from a youth perspective and empower participating youth to be – and to be seen as – resources in their communities.

The workshop is sponsored by The Waterbury Health Department, the  Northwestern Connecticut Area Health Education Center and the Waterbury Hospital.

Insights into Occupation: Visual Research Methods and the Study of Occupation 2012 Annual Research Conference - Society for the Study of Occupation (SSO:USA) Portland, Oregon, October 4th - 6th, 2012.

Description of this workshop: Visual research methods allow individuals to share their experiences with researchers, clinicians, faculty, and service providers to identify strengths, challenges, hopes, goals, and opportunities for dialogue and change. With these methods participants create art or take photographs of their lives and experience to answer specific questions, and discuss their art or photos with service providers, researchers, and each other. The approach has been used to explore lived experience with health and healthcare, illuminate barriers to access, illustrate quality of care, evaluate programs in respectful and meaningful ways, and more recently, to explore everyday occupations. This institute will cover the foundations of visual methods, provide examples of photos and narratives from work with individuals living with brain injury, people living with HIV/AIDS, and others, and provide hands-on, interactive experience with several visual research steps: becoming a visual researcher, using visual methods in an ethical manner, discussing images, writing captions, and analyzing images and text. Of particular focus will be the use of theory for analysis purposes. The institute will culminate in a brainstorming session on possibilities for adapting visual methods of research to the study of occupation, and discussion of potential funding and publication opportunities for studies using visual research methods).

(CAP) builds on Girls Inc.’s 10 years of experience with photovoice and Dr Lorenz. CAP is an after-school program that puts cameras in the hands of adolescent girls so they can take photographs of community resources and problems and share them with each other and with people who make decisions, and expands photovoice to encompass an investigation of culture and strengthen the research skill-building aspect of photovoice. Photovoice: CAP aims to enhance girls’ understanding of culture in a global sense: Project activities will take place at Girls Inc. of Greater Lowell, Lowell High School Freshman Academy, and BR21 Middle School in Vienna, Austria.
