Trauma and narrative therapy: Video recordings of Michael White (part I)


Jack Saul, the Director of the International Trauma Studies Program (ITSP), has recently made available a video-recording of Michael White teaching in New York in April 2007. The ITSP is a postgraduate training and research institute for the study, treatment, and prevention of trauma-related distress. Founded at New York University in 1997, the ITSP is now an independent non-profit organization. As Jack Saul writes: ‘ITSP has from its beginning valued the work of Michael White and the field of narrative therapy which has contributed to our approach to working with trauma-affected populations not only in psychotherapy, but as well to our community-based work in collective narration and remembrance through oral history, the media, and the performing arts. We were honoured to host Michael White in the Spring of 2007 for a two-day workshop on Trauma and Narrative Therapy, and in collaboration with the Michael White Archive are in the process of putting video selections from this workshop on the Web’.
