Reclaiming Community out of Personal Catastrophe

Peggy Sax, PhD

Takoma Park, Maryland

April 11, 2014

Presented by The Narrative Reading Group & The Center for Healthy Families at the Family Science Department, University of Maryland

Through video, audio, and story-telling, Peggy Sax will explore therapeutic practices that engage clients who have survived psychological catastrophes -their worst nightmares – in the supportive actions of the communities around them, peer-to-peer support, and “giving back” practices. Weaving in the voices of service-seekers, this workshop attends to the deep – and often healing – satisfaction that can come from ally-to-ally relationships, getting involved with local/community resources, drawing from experience knowledge to give back to others and making meaningful contributions to others’ lives. Built on ethical foundations of collaboration, relationally responsible practices and choice, “communal” ways of working challenge assumptions about therapy as solely working in individualized ways.
