Project
This project is interested in exploring questions that unfold life stories, heal broken life stories and promote the development of character through life stories. The questions this project is concerned with may be categorized as existential or spiritual in nature and it is initially envisaged that they will comprise of the questions a person ask of themselves during the therapeutic journey or may be the questions a person perceives the world to be asking of them that is either from a situational (i.e. fate or destiny) or greater power (i.e. spiritual, mystical, universe or synchronous). In the first instance, it is necessary to understand how life stories create meaning for a person (and vice versa) to further understand what role questions these sorts of questions may play in this process in order to empirically define their role and then explore and develop practices to enhance resources to create healthy life stories.
