• How do we connect narrative therapy and some narrative ideas with some of the other newer knowledges that are coming forward?
  • How do we connect narrative therapy with EMDR,  somatic type therapies and bodywork?

Everyone’s here today is trying to figure out such a very profoundly difficult thing to bring together bodies of work that from first look you would think: how you could combine them?

Bridging Neurobiology, The Body & Narrative Practice


 Course Description


Narrative practices have evolved in many ways over the decades in response to changing professional, social and cultural contexts. The founders of the Narrative Therapy approach, the late Michael White and David Epston, gave voice to the  hope and intention that we would continue to try out different modes of inquiry, come up with new practices, and integrate these cherished ways of being with people that fit with our own local experiences and socio-political contexts.

This course explores  integration that resonates both practically and philosophically, and that supports the social construction of identities and the politics of experience, while escaping recruitment into interiority ideas and binaries of body/mind, inside/outside, thinking/feeling and resources/deficits.
