When working with a client’s memory, how do we locate the fleeting, joyful bits so often overshadowed by loss that no new insights can emerge? In this two-part workshop over two consecutive Sundays in February, the memory artist and clinical social worker Nancy Gershman who developed Dreamscaping, will introduce her novel technique for arriving at the memory our client needs in order to move from isolation to re-integration in the world. This playful approach begins with excavating a client’s most precious memories—then joining the client there to figure out ways to enhance or build a new (prescriptive) memory from lived experience so that it becomes the place where healing can happen.
