The X-Powers Project:

Calling up super-powers and wonderment, to subvert seemingly stuck stories

with Daniel Angus & Marko Turner (Sydney, Australia)

December 18, 2022 Collab Salon: 4:00 – 5:30 pm NY time

This Salon will showcase highlights from our shared passion project of several years: the scouring for and nurturance of those unique client superpowers that can encourage courageous imaginations.  Building on the centrality of the narrative practice pantheon, we will share our uses of imaginative Know-How and inspirations from Narrative Therapy Wonderland. Client story examples will include, officiating mother-daughter family reunions, the case of the talking shower cricket, the protest power of panic attacks, and the giant misunderstood tarantula.

Learning Objectives

The program supported me to:

1) Learn about the aesthetic wonderment and dramatic distancing of calling up superpowers.

2) Learn techniques for staying focused on client preferences whilst nurturing their unique superpowers.

3) Practice inverting pathologies by liberating the supremely personal.
