Becoming our practices:
Interweaving the storied, embodied, affective and relations of power
Ian Percy (Perth, Australia)
Sunday, December 20, 2020: 4 pm NY time
Ian continues to explore in his therapeutic work, and also in his teaching program, the interweaving of four interdependent dimensions of practice. He will present scenarios to illustrate some aspects of his weavings and wonderings. Along the way he will very briefly speak to:
- Upholding the precious traditions of narrative ethics
- Sensory impressions in the making of storied lives
- Interpreting mindfulness: body, ethics and inspiration
- Situated affect
- Embodied/enacted power relations
Following this, Ian will invite the group to break into four smaller parts, each with responsibility for a particular dimension. Guiding questions will encourage members to consider some initial thoughts/practices/
- Participants will discuss the practice implications of some emerging developments in Narrative Therapy
- Participants will learn a questioning process to integrate four dimensions of therapeutic practice
- Participants will experience how these dimensions could cue each other to appear, so enriching and sustaining beneficial storylines

Ian Percy, Ph.D. (Perth, Western Australia) is a family therapist, supervisor, trainer and published author in narrative and mindfulness approaches. Inspired by the writings of Michael White, David Epston and Alan Jenkins, he took a social constructionist and narrative turn in his practice some 25 years ago, intrigued by the power of cultural discourses and language to shape our lives and relationships. Ian has also studied and practiced various forms of meditation for four decades. The intersection of these influences led him to pursue an integration of mindfulness and Narrative Therapy, which includes attending to gestures and postures as expressions of distress, as statements of position, and as openings to preferred storylines. He is interested in notions of attentional capture and attentional choice, and the politics and ethics of mindful attention in therapy.

Whether for The Collab Salon or a course webinar, these meetings usually last about an hour (sometimes a bit longer, but usually not more than 1-1/2 hours). Events are recorded, and then become available on-demand afterwards to Collab Members – or course registrants – whether or not able to join in real time.
