Dr. Schwind is an Associate Professor at the Daphne Cockwell School of Nursing at Ryerson University. Her Arts-Informed Narrative Inquiry (AINI), focuses on reconstruction of experience within professional and therapeutic relationships in education and practice. To that end Dr. Schwind has developed Narrative Reflective Process (NRP), which is both a qualitative data collection tool and a professional development instrument. This creative self-expression method includes mindful self-awareness, storytelling, metaphors, drawing, creative writing and reflective dialogue. Using NRP, she explores humanness-of-care, defined as mindful presence with self and with persons in our care.
