Pia Kontos, PhD

Follow Dr. Kontos:
My current research program represents a convergence of several key interests or themes: the use of critical social theory and qualitative research methods to examine the norms and assumptions underpinning care practices in long-term care and rehabilitation settings; the development of a philosophy and approach to relational caring; the evaluation of arts-based approaches including music, dance, and improvisational play to enrich the lives of people living with dementia; and the development and evaluation of research-based theatre, improvisational drama, and film to bridge the principles of relational caring with practice in long-term care and rehabilitation settings.
