Reading: Destabilizing Chronic Identities Madigan

Stephen Madigan’s paper discusses the relational politic between narrative therapy theory and practice. He writes about working with persons living on psychiatric wards who have been named by professional experts and captured within professionalized and destabilizing – chronic identities. The paper features an example of his unique practice creation known as therapeutic letter writing campaigns, as well as an ongoing look at the production, reproduction, and possible transformations of psychological culture within the organization of therapeutic life.

Following every video and text lesson there is a quiz waiting for you that is paired up with a nice long follow up discussion. However – these discussions can only be accessed by VSNT.live members.
