Narrative Therapy Over TimeUnknown - 2010
Stephen Madigan demonstrates his poststructural approach to narrative therapy, originally developed by David Epston and Michael White. In six sessions, Dr. Madigan works with a man in his 50's who talks about his struggle with anxiety that has kept him inside his home for two full years, prohibited him from holding a job for 10 years, and prevented him from trying to meet other people and develop friendships. As the client shares these stories that make up his life, the client and Madigan uncover alternate narratives, ones that reflect the client's skills, abilities, know-how, and previous evidence of confidence, risk taking and greater social connection. As the sessions unfold, the client comes to a new understanding of himself and begins to re-author his life and develop successful relationships.
