Description

Creating Coherent Client Narratives

5.0 Continuing Education contact hours (C-E)

Neuropsychologists and teachers of mindfulness alike are pointing to the importance of having a coherent narrative,for optimal health and well-being. All clinicians understand the importance of listening; participants will learn something that is not taught in graduate school or training programs: they will learn the meaning of a coherent narrative, and how they can listen to, question, fill out, re-frame and work with client material toward creating one. Participants will learn the importance of eliciting a client’s narrative, and how to quickly discover early emotional learning patterns and schemas that are related to the client’s presenting problem, and how to then shift these stuck positions. Participants will also be guided through the use of writing prompts, from the client’s own spoken material, to sustain the work between sessions as a tool for empowerment. This work is particularly crucial for those whose narratives have been buried, disenfranchised or ‘othered’.

The Instructor will lecture, use case demonstrations, lead exercises, take questions, and distribute handouts. Live, in person.

Gail Noppe-Brandon, LCSW, MA, MPA, is a clinician with decades of narrative experience as a therapist and coach. She served as a Dean at NYU, where she also taught writing, has developed and offered Emotional Intelligence professional development workshops for the Department of Education, authored several books, chapters and articles on Narratology, is a featured communication Coach on PBS, and has given trainings on the use of Narratology in treating trauma at many institutes, conferences, and agencies. Gail was a psychotherapist at the JBFCS for 5 years, and is currently in private practice in NYC. Recipient of several Carnegie grants for excellence in teaching, Gail is also an experienced presenter and educator.

-Participants will learn the difference between a bio-psycho-social and a narrative.
