  • Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, PhD Applications of “flow” theory to post-traumatic growth in combat veterans
  • Nina Kraus, PhD, Pathophysiology of traumatic brain injury and auditory processing-the role of music
  • Dr. Emmeline Edwards, Sound Health, an initiative sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, in association with the National Endowment for the Arts, to explore connections between music and the mind.

Please Join Us!

The Creative Forces Clinical Research Summit will be streamed live on Monday, September 18 from 11:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. and on Tuesday, September 19 from 8:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Here’s your link to connect to the online streaming:

Creative Forces: NEA Healing Arts Network is a national initiative led by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and state arts agencies. The initiative offers creative arts therapies to military patients and

veterans who have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injury and associated psychological health conditions, including post-traumatic stress.

The Creative Forces collaboration began in 2012 at the National Intrepid Center of Excellence/Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Congressional support enabled the National Endowment for the Arts to expand the partnership in 2017 to 11 DoD and VA clinical sites, and a telehealth program for patients in rural and remote areas.

A core aim of the initiative is to improve our understanding of the biological, psychological, behavioral, and economic impacts of creative arts therapies in integrative care settings for patients with TBI and PTS. In service of this goal, the Creative Forces Clinical Research Summit takes place September 18-19 at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.

The NEA is sharing a research synthesis document for attendees prior to the summit. This document will summarize recent and ongoing clinical research projects associated with Creative Forces. It also will analyze data from interviews and scientific literature to highlight progress and gaps in knowledge related to creative arts therapies for the populations, health conditions, and clinical care settings specific to Creative Forces.

Summit attendees will hear keynotes from world-renowned experts in adjacent fields of scientific inquiry and then participate in a series of panels that review the clinical approaches to various creative arts therapies within Creative Forces. These conversations will culminate with ideas for a network-wide, five-year research agenda. Ultimately, that agenda will explore new ways of measuring the impact of creative arts therapies in integrative, team-centered care settings.
