How do forgotten, interrupted, or false stories affect your life? What do you do when you feel "stuck in the past" but don't know how to move forward? How can you confidently voice your truth? Narrative Coaching is a mindful voicing and listening that can then be brought into all other relationships. It allows participants to discover the answers they already hold, in a creative approach and within a nurturing relationship. Narratology is the study of story, and how we give and take meaning from our lives and come to understand our worlds. Gail Noppe-Brandon, LMSW, MPA, MA has over 25 years of experience in narratology. She is a published playwright and was the first ever recipient of the Drama League’s Grant for New Works. Gail is author of three books and is a featured Communication Coach on PBS. A documentary film about her work received the Chris Award at the Columbus International Film Festival. Her Narrative Coaching method has been endorsed by such organizations as the Heyman Center for Philanthropy, Bank Street and Hunter Colleges, and the New York City Department of Education. Gail is a master teacher who has received five Carnegie Awards for Excellence, as well as an award from the President’s Council on the Humanities. She is currently in clinical practice at the JBFCS Manhattan Greenberg Center and coaches individuals and groups privately.
