"Stories are the how we make sense of ourselves, the world, and our sense of ourselves in the world. By leaning into our clients’ stories, we can better understand the systems impacting them, and gain a richer understanding of the strengths they can recruit when facing challenges."

VOLUME 2: Beverly

Beverly, whose motto for life is “to thine own self be true,” is a retired African American woman who grew up in New York during the days of racial segregation. By questioning the deeply-woven stories society tells about what it means to be Black, and exploring the narratives Beverly shares, Heath helps Beverly co-author powerful counter stories of courage, resilience and a steadfast belief in who she is at her core. In this volume, Heath will show you how to:

  • Invite clients to challenge dominant stories about themselves and their lives
  • Use stories to enrich your understanding of client strengths and challenges
  • Rethink what you write in your session notes and how you use them in session

VOLUME 3: Ian

Ian is a former rugby player-turned-sports psychologist whose career as a professional athlete was derailed by catastrophic health-related setbacks. Over the course of two sessions, you’ll see how Heath blends contemporary and traditional Narrative Therapy techniques to co-author moving counter stories of strength and resilience. Through an unconventional use of session notes, creative plays on language, and unabashed engagement, Heath demonstrates how therapists can help clients redefine what's possible by pushing beyond the stories that the world tells about who they are and who they should be. In this video, you'll learn to

  • Examine the stories clients tell about themselves and the world tells about them
  • Become an active participant in the therapeutic process
  • Engage with interest and creativity to identify factors that impact clients’ identity

“As a witness to my clients’ stories, I think it's important to share my reactions. I'm reminded here of something David Epston once said, ‘I'm trying to be a person. I'm not trying to impersonate a professional person.’ My hope is that by understanding how I feel moved by their stories, they can begin to witness themselves in new ways.”
