Zoy Kazan, The Long Road Home

75.00

This remarkable program contains excerpts from seven narrative interviews with elderly women. Each interview is followed by brief reflections from a small team that has observed the interview. These women, in their eighties and nineties have the opportunity to share stories about loved ones whom they have lost. They tell us about how they maintain their relationships with these people who were so important to them. They were anxious about having a conversation with someone who has a specialty in bereavement and at the next meeting of their group they unaminously voiced how pleased they were that we did not focus on bereavement. This is an alternative kind of conversation that offers a more positive focus on grief and loss.
Tape Running Time: 2 hours 26 minutes
In a consultation, Zoy Kazan, Narrative Therapist from Adelaide, Australia, sees Dave, a Vietnam veteran, who describes his departure from a path of drug addiction and suicidality to becoming his own person. Exploring the recent Narrative therapy in which Dave has participated, several "unique outcomes" or exceptional developments are identified. A Reflecting Team holds a brief conversation about the session and Dave returns, stimulated to tell a moving and healing story of how he has reconnected with his pain and compassion through the writing of stories of his Vietnam experiences. C34A booklet about Narrative ideas and the use of "transitions as metaphor" as well as a short-answer test are included.
