About the Training
Re-membering Conversations and Internalised Other Interviewing seek to reengage with significant people from personal history who have, in important ways, shaped who we have become. They belong to our life stories, to our prior selves. They contribute to a multi-voiced, multi-bodied and multi-storied sense of self. We will consider how people show this self to others and how they hold others in memory. Such explorations can have significant therapeutic implications.
This is an experiential and practical two-day workshop. Though it is not therapy, trainees will attend with a willingness to explore certain aspects of their personal histories. They will take responsibility for their level of engagement and what they choose to discuss.
1. Producing the sense of a personal storied self
2. Witnessing each other's and our own story making
3. Performing and distributing the porous self: from autonomous being to becoming with others
4. Relational resonance and relational dissonance
5. Detailed guided exercises drawing from participants' lives
6. Narrative and neural creation: attention, intention, memory and repetition
Skills Acquisition will include:
1. How to introduce these special kinds of conversations
2. Understanding the importance of sequencing questions
3. Plotting the effects of relational connections through time and context
4. Creating agency within complex shades of meaning
5. Expanding future stories of preferred relational selves and life
As people learn in different ways, this training will be facilitated through a variety of teaching methods including:
1. Skills building demonstration interviews
2. Guided exercises
3. Small groups as supportive audiences
4. Large group discussions
5. Scenarios from therapy
