with Marie-Nathalie Beaudoin & Gerald Monk
Monday, March 4, 2024, 4-5:30 pm New York Time
Narrative Practices and Emotions is a beautifully crafted book that provides fresh perspectives for new and experienced practitioners on how to combine classic narrative therapy with the latest scholarship on the mind-body connection.
This inspiring text keeps a keen eye on the socio-cultural backdrop that is intimately shaping peoples’ lives while tapping into cutting-edge discoveries on mindfulness, interpersonal neurobiology, and positive psychology. Each chapter offers a wealth of clinical questions and embodied exercises. Conversation maps that provide important guideposts to practitioners are exemplified by engaging transcripts of therapeutic work.
As the book unfolds, readers discover a wide variety of ways to assist people of all ages in re-engaging with a meaningful life and sustaining well-being despite struggles with job search, parenting, conflicts, or even pre-verbal traumatic experiences. The compelling stories elegantly demonstrate that skillful conversations can invigorate hope and support the emergence of flourishing identities.
In conversation with each other and through a Q& A with participants, Marie-Nathalie and Gerald will share the experience of writing this book and what they value most.
