Narrative Practice Introductions 2 – An Introduction to Re-membering Conversation (Laura Sanger)

  • The Road Centre 21a North Burns Chester le Street, England, DH3 3TF United Kingdom (map)

Trainer: Dr Laura Sanger, Clinical Psychologist & Narrative Therapist

This workshop will offer an introduction to re-membering conversations. 

Re-membering was introduced by Michael White as a different way to approach conversations about loss and bereavement that the stage theories which were prevalent at the time. Re-membering is about re-connection with the people who have contributed to your identity. 

The workshop will include presentation, discussion and pair-work exercises. The tradition of narrative therapy is for practioners to do pair work with material from your own life, rather than using role play which represents someone else’s story. This also gives you an ‘inside out’ view of how this practice can work. 

The workshop will include: 

• Ideas informing re-membering practises
• ‘People become people through other people’ (Mandela) 
• Individualising discourse and isolation
• Trying out re-membering conversations
• Re-membering metaphors 

By the end of the workshop, participants will have learned about the practice of re-membering and will have had experience using re-membering practices in the context of their own life story. 

Limited number of places available, early booking advised. 

Light refreshments provided throughout the day – bring your own lunch.
