    Photovoice - Lectures, Trainings, and Workshops !          
~Examples~


What is Photovoice? Photovoice is a participatory research and critical thinking method that allows patients and community members to share their experiences and collaborate for change. Using photographs can illuminate barriers to access, illustrate quality of care, and influence policy and resource decision making in respectful and supportive ways. It can help unite service providers and patients through visual accounts to understand and to address health care issues as a shared endeavor. It is an innovative technique of interest to community members, graduate students, policy makers, professionals, and more..

History: Photovoice was developed by developed by Caroline C. Wang of the University of Michigan, and Mary Ann Burris, research associate of the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) at the University of London. In 1992, Wang and Burris created what is now known as "Photovoice" as a way to enable rural women of Yunnan Province, China, to influence the policies and programs that affected them. It has since been used among homeless adults in Ann Arbor, Michigan and among community health workers and teachers in rural South Africa and by Dr. Claudia Mitchell et al., and with girls, Township youth, and brain injury survivors with Dr. Laura S. Lorenz. The concept owes a debt to the Paulo Freire's pedagogy related to critical consciousness, feminist theory and empowerment. Perhaps the best of description of the history of Photovoice is to start here Photovoice from Wikipedia.

Workshops/Lectures/Talks:
Dr Laura offers Photovoice Workshops for educators, facilitators, service providers, researchers, development workers, and others seeking to gain conceptual and hands-on experience with this dynamic community assessment and reflection method. Workshops are tailored to meet audience needs. Participants leave ready to design and implement a project in their local context. A CD of conceptual and practical materials for applying Photovoice and managing project logistics and outreach is provided.

Insights into Occupation: Visual Research Methods and the Study of Occupation

2012 Annual Research Conference - Society for the Study of Occupation (SSO:USA). The Benson Hotel, Portland, Oregon, October 4th - 6th, 2012

Click here for information about the Pre-Conference Institute - Insights into Occupation: Visual Research Methods and the Study of Occupation by Dr. Laura Lorenz. Thursday October 4th, 2012  (2:30 - 6:00 pm)

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.

Photovoice Facilitator Workshop: Support Group Leaders

Brain Injury Association of MA. Westborough, MA (May 7th, 2007)

Laura, in collaboration with Barbara Webster and Laura Foley, led a photovoice training workshop for leaders of brain injury survivor support groups in Massachusetts. The 6-hour workshop introduced the concept and process of photovoice, shared examples of past projects, and determined a photovoice topic for the day. Participants developed hands on experience with photovoice as they took photographs in and around the workshop site, discussed them, wrote narratives, and shared with the larger group. The workshop wrapped up with discussion of ways to adapt photovoice to local brain injury support groups and an evaluation of the day. Participants left with a binder of conceptual and practical materials to refer to as they design and implement their own projects with brain injury survivors.

From September–November 2006, Barbara Webster and Laura Foley, traumatic brain injury survivors and leaders, together with Laura Lorenz co-facilitated a photovoice project with 8 members of a brain injury survivor support group in Framingham, MA. The project culminated in an exhibit of 50 photos and narratives, grouped under 9 themes, at the Annual Conference of the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts at the Best Western Conference Center in Marlborough, MA, March 22, 2007. Outreach and other efforts continue.
