ZOOM Grief - Narrative Therapy - 9-10 November 2020

About Your Speaker

Carolyn Markey has considerable experience and great interest in counselling children, young people, and their families and caregivers in relation to a broad range of problems affecting their lives. She has worked in a variety of therapeutic contexts including major non-government welfare organisations, supporting accommodation for young people, and has also used narrative ideas in tertiary and adult education settings. Carolyn also has experience in the areas of family separation, effects of violence and abuse, school-related difficulties, and working with people affected by concerns about anxiety and depression. Carolyn enjoys using narrative ideas in group settings where people come together to talk about similar issues they are facing. These have included groups in which people wish to talk about sole parenting, living with the effects of violence and abuse, or groups of men wanting to take responsibility for abusive actions. Carolyn also has considerable experience supervising other practitioners in narrative therapy as well.

A Course Brief

Carolyn Markey addresses the difficult areas of grief and loss with practical helps based on Narrative Therapy concepts. Highlights include:

1. Discussing traditional ideas of grief and loss including the conventional assumptions of Grief Psychology contrasted with the ideas that shape Narrative Practices in addressing grief

2. Looking at how death is an end to a life but not necessarily a relationship - and re-membering a person with material from Barbara Myerhoff

3. Categories of Enquiry and group work will also be used in practice groups

4. Addressing cultural messages about loss and death will be discussed and how they interact with persons experiencing grief

5. Delving into the use of re-membering conversational maps, the absent but implicit, definitional ceremonies with outsider-witness practices - all used and practiced within small groups
