CeCelia R. Zorn, PhD, RN, is a Professor Emerita from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. In her teaching and research, she integrated humanities into nursing and authored more than 30 articles in peer-reviewed journals, several book chapters, and three books: Becoming a Nurse Educator: Dialogue for an Engaging Career, Angels Don’t Get Tattoos, and Devils Don’t Wear Velvet. Her husband, Wayne, was diagnosed with Primary Progressive Aphasia four years ago. Now CeCelia is continually learning supportive communication strategies, confronting the challenges of a changing relationship, and facing a descending progression. She finds meaning in the following: Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass—it’s learning to dance in the rain.
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.
