Narrative Therapy – Besides the various mystical practices churches in general have latched onto in the past few decades, several psychological techniques and procedures have taken the church by storm, claiming that it can help us find meaning and purpose in our lives, and make the world a better place.


The main objective of this slideshow is to show that Narrative Therapy is inextricably linked to the notion that your life’s story can be dominated either by positive or negative thinking patterns, and that you have the power, via therapeutic narrative sessions (at a hefty price, of course) to drastically change the course of your life.

Henceforth, we shall be looking at some of the key players in history who have had a significant influence on the development and proliferation of positive thinking in both the Western and Eastern hemispheres, and in both the spheres of religion and secular humanism, particularly psychology.

See slideshows below; one is to be viewed on a mobile phone and one for desktop view:

I have been experimenting with several software programs that provide extensive tools to produce slideshows for mobile phones. The one I came across offering me the best tools for this purpose is CANVA. I hope to produce two options for our members – a full-screen desktop view and a mobile view. In addition, I will continue to provide our readers with the same material in article form with audio. It takes time to make slideshows and I would like to ask you for a wee bit of patience.
