Concurrent Session – 2A: Storying and Re-Storying: Elders and Their Narratives

April 29, 2021





A life task is to story and re-story. One’s previous assumed world is often altered by disruptive changes. Whether naïve or grounded, a person’s narrative informs their daily choices. And whether the altering story is mundane or core to one’s identity, a threshold can be crossed. In this experiential session, participants will explore perspectives and creative tools to evoke and assist when narratives change. Included in the session will be the grief of shattered stories; bibliotherapeutic tools for revising stories; and bridges between earlier, current, and future narratives.
