In our final installment of Narrative 101, Derrick discusses the trendy topic of deconstruction. Is it just post-modern nonsense? Or is it a helpful way of evaluating how narratives are shaping us and why we truly believe what we believe? Derrick shares his story of deconstructing his faith, and ultimately how to pair deconstruction with reconstruction.

We're back with another exciting panel featuring some of my fellow colleagues in the field of Narrative Practices. This all-star line-up includes Narrative Therapist Emily Bostrom, Narrative Social Worker Sarah Houston, and writer and Narrative Practitioner Andrea Wilson. Together, we discuss the power of language in our lives, and how to give that power back to the people we work with.
Emily Bostrom loves people and their stories. She lives in western Canada surrounded by forest, rivers and lakes. Her website is www.innergravity.ca
Sarah Houston lives with her partner and two sons in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  The traditional custodians of this beautiful land were the nations that make up the Blackfoot Confederacy.  She is a registered Social Worker and current student in the Masters of Narrative Therapy and Community Work program. She is interested in opportunities to make space for voices with lived experience and the power of collective documents.  
In summer 2022, Andrea Wilson was the narrative therapist in residence for TendHer, a program of mental resilience for 1000+ women across Iowa. She recently taught an Iowa Writers' House workshop on Narrative therapy and memoir writing with famed memoirist, Hope Edelman.
