Many clients come to us when their sense of self has become depleted, when they are feeling empty and desolate. The task of helping people reinvigorate their sense of self is greatly assisted by understanding the metaphorical inner landscape of consciousness, particularly the private language and internal images that underlie our experience of identity. This course will offer a narrative approach to the crafting of therapeutic responses that will redevelop this language of inner life, and that will provide a foundation for people to proceed with their lives. You will learn a variety of methods for facilitating this process, including approaches to re-authoring conversations, outsider-witness retellings, and practices of the written word. This will be linked to the work of William James and Lev Vygotsky to provide a clinically invaluable perspective on the often overlooked developmental processes of identity formation.
Michael White, B.A.S.W., is co-director of the Dulwich Centre in Adelaide, South Australia, and co-author of Narrative Means to Therapeutic Ends.
