WRITING THE WRONGS: A retreat sponsored by the UCLA Health System Ethics Center.

This was an innovative program for healthcare professionals dealing with moral distress arising when the professional knows the right ethical action, but is prevented from doing it because of various constraints, i.e. policies, limited resources, patient’s or families demands for non-beneficial treatment. This retreat was designed to offer a supportive and safe place to express those morally distressing experiences through writing, movement, and guided discussion in the company of professionals.

“Having never written I began this class as a lark to see if I might have a voice or a style of my own. Now, a year and a half later, I am writing query letters and beginning to submit some of my own work!”
