The Search for Meaning Through Stories and Psychotherapy
(Approved for 6 hours of continuing education for psychotherapists)
The Search for Meaning through Stories and Psychotherapy
Initiatory tales can be guides to developing a sense of purpose, and belonging. This is a workshop on how the search for meaning shapes adult psychological life. We will demonstrate methods for drawing insights from legends and folklore, such as the tales of the search for the Holy Grail. We will show how to analyze the structure of quest stories for key metaphors – to reveal how strengthening a sense of meaning can help with life-stage transitions. This day is useful for counselors, teachers, writers, clergy, and those interested in archetypal perspectives on their own quests for meaning
