NPT Pre-Workshop Launch Meeting
LHA Research Hub seminar room, 2-5pm, Monday 15th Feb 2016
This will be an internal event to launch our initiative. The team will discuss future plans. A main item of business will be to discuss the timing and focus of the second workshop NPT workshop in 2016/2017. It is is likely to focus on how narratives play their part in therapy – looking at the nature of narrative practices, how they are used in different cultures and how we should understand the way they transform the way we think about ourselves – and thus live our lives. Special attention will be given to contributions from indigenous studies, media studies and literature. Speakers: We will invite David Denborough, Dulwich Centre, http://dulwichcentre.com.au/about/our-people/ and Marc Slors (Radboud University Nijmegen) to deliver keynotes. Prof Slors eads the “The Management of the Self: A Humanities Approach to Self-Management in Psychiatry and Psychosomatic Medicine”project – http://www.ru.nl/english/about-us/our-university/change-perspective/2014-2015/marc-slors/. This second NPT workshop could aim at presenting any new developments in the field that are relevant to NPT and which might for the basis for future projects and publications.
