The process of change is usually not immediate or linear, and many of us need as much support as we can get to create the changes we want in our lives.
Narrative Practice is based on the idea that the stories we each tell about ourselves are not private or individual, but are social achievements. It is through community and relationship that we actively construct our identities, and so sharing our stores of change and the stories about what we most value is an important part of bringing our efforts into reality. It is through community that our individual stories become living practices.
The use of Outsider Witnesses is a process commonly used within Narrative Therapy. For the first half of this event, Jess will interview one person about the change they are trying to bring about in their life, with the audience participating as a witness to the interviewee’s process. The audience will then be guided and invited to acknowledge the preferred stories and identity claims of the person being interviewed.The audience will then split into small groups, offering each person the opportunity to share their story.
