Amber Baas, SPT is a third-year Doctor of Physical Therapy Student at Emory University. She was led to the rehabilitation professions through an interest in the human body and a desire to be with those going through bodily recovery and help make that process as hopeful as possible. Her interest in the humanities stems from a love of old books and observing how history, culture, technology, and so many other factors impact the human experience. She has enjoyed serving on the Humanities Committee within the Emory DPT program and helping to foster reflection on the human experience.
The Journal for the Humanities in Rehabilitation is a peer reviewed, multi-media journal using a collaborative model with rehabilitation professionals, patients and their families to gain a greater understanding of the human experience of disability through art, literature and narrative. The purpose of this interdisciplinary journal is to raise the consciousness and deepen the intellect of the humanistic relationship in the rehabilitation sciences.
The Journal of Humanities in Rehabilitation offers a mailing list with periodic updates about new articles.
