DR. SUSAN MOSSMAN RIVA

Creating dialogical space within social and healthcare networks, while promoting participatory practices has been the focus of my work. I began as a mediator on an accident site, performing mediation in an intercultural context. I then designed a mediation service, offering conflict resolution and health-care prevention services to political asylum seekers. My recent work doing needs assessment for public health reports has allowed me to integrate the perceptions of professionals into healthcare planning, informing decision-makers. As a consultant I facilitate conflicts and social transformation processes. My interdisciplinary research engenders social innovation.

MY PAST RESEARCH

The Senior Living Lab

Hopeful healthy aging model

As a researcher within the Senior Living Lab, an interdisciplinary research project at the University of Applied Sciences and Art Western Switzerland, I produced a documentary film on hopeful healthy aging. 

Perceptions of aging were gathered through filmed interviews using Senior Living Lab participant's testimonies of resilience.
