Narrative Pastoral Care

A better response to mental illness…

We are storied people; this matters when we talk about caring for those struggling with mental health. We follow the work of Dr. Karen Scheib who pairs Narrative Personality Theory and Narrative Therapy to provide a new practice of pastoral care.

Due to a technical error (aka not starting the recording), this week begins a couple of minutes in to episode.
