Jeff Evans, PhD, is a Clinical Psychologist with a background in chemistry and physiological psychology. He teaches undergraduate courses “Topics in the Psychology of Creativity,” “Art, Mind, and Medicine,” and first-year writing in the Residential College, University of Michigan. He retired recently from Rehabilitation Psychology and Neuropsychology in the Department of PM&R where he practiced for almost 30 years. As a clinician he learned to listen to patient stories and feels a pressing challenge to psychology is to create ways for the humanities, the human sciences and the natural sciences to talk with each other.
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.
