Illness as a Transformative Experience by Prof Havi Carel

Illness As a Transformative Experience

with Professor Havi Carel

A key aspect of transformative experience is that our values and understanding are changed by the experience itself in ways that cannot be anticipated.

For example a person with blindness or diabetes rates their wellbeing much higher than a healthy person would imagine they might (in anticipation). We emerge changed by the experience itself. Havi Carel hersell lives with a chronic condition and can inform us from her personal experience.

This topic will be of particular interest to us as therapists, often seeking consent for treatment the experience and outcome of which may be unimaginable to potential clients.
