Part 1: Developing Curiosity – Educational Version with Public Performance Rights

“Re-membering conversations” (the hyphen signals the deliberate reproduction of membership), can be useful in counseling someone who is grieving but can also be used to regenerate the thoughts of the contributions made by those who are no longer living. Such contributions are resources for identity growth and for problem solving. In this moving counseling session, the client recalls the importance her mother played in her life and the many ways in which her mother’s legacy continues to be a vibrant part of who she is. Her mother is “brought to life” through the rich stories told in the counseling conversation, even though she had died many years previously.
