In this video, academics from University of Cardiff share the DrawingOut model which can encourage self management supported conversations.

Recorded remotely during COVID-19, in this ALLIANCE Live interview Senior Development Officer Rhona Millar speaks with Dr Sofia Gameiro and Dr Elisabeth El Rafaie, academics from the University of Cardiff who have developed DrawingOut, a tool which can support people, in particular people living with invisible conditions, to communicate their experiences through drawing.

In this discussion, Elisabeth and Sofia share how DrawingOut (this link will take you away from our website) was initially used as a tool for sessions with women from BME communities to support them to share their experiences around taboo or difficult to talk about subjects, such as infertility. DrawingOut has developed into a model with wide ranging applications, including its use as a tool to encourage self management supported conversations for people living with invisible conditions. Sofia and Elisabeth also discuss findings from their research which suggests outputs from DrawingOut sessions can foster greater empathy from healthcare professionals.
