B822 Techniques Library: Who are you?

Performing as Dracula in the ‘Dracula Spectacula’ at the People’s Theatre, Newcastle December 1979

Who are you?

Is the problem deeper than ‘making things work better’ ? Are there issues regarding your ‘identity’ or ‘life strategy’ ? (Techniques Library, 2010)

Who am I?

or from a team perspective ‘who are we?’

Write as many answers as you can.

When you run out … keep going.

Put down anything that occurs to you, play word association, until ‘something emergers’.

Working with a partner

Sit opposte a partner and give each other five to fifteen minutes each before the other takes up the ‘call’.

The listener does no more: no comments, nods, smiles, frowns, just attentive listening.

(Sounds like a form a therapy to me, whether cogntive behavioural therapy or even psychiatry).

The listener can review but DON’T GIVE ADVICE.

Life Review

St Ignatius Loyola suggested looking back on your life from your deathbed.

Imagine your infancy

Imagine being five

Imagine being:

  • 12
  • 25
  • 40
  • 65

Imagine being very, very old

Imagine your death

Imagine being reborn

Return
