Eagerly Anticipated New Online Series Is Now in Active Development!
Many therapists especially the younger generation of narrative therapists are asking for integrative therapeutic resources and practices that engage narrative meaning-making while building on non-verbal embodied healing experiences. What began here as one of our 12 Hot Topics for the New Decade has now become a new series exploring how Narrative Therapy can honor history while bridging with other embodied approaches.
Narrative Therapy & The Affective Turn
We are delighted to share several resources examining the contributions of the affective-discursive turn to the evolution of narrative therapy.
