Our discussion will be led by Dr Rachel Cason with the focus on Identities That Bind Us.
Rachel wants to explore together the various identities we carry through our lives, those we are given and those we chose. ‘Binding identities' can be experienced as both containing where they connect us to others and help us have a sense of our own ‘shape' and as constraining when we feel limited by them or silenced by the ways others perceive us.
Before the session, Rachel wants us to consider
1. What identities are you carrying? e.g. National, career, gender, community.
2. Which of these have been chosen for you and which have you chosen for yourself?
3. Where do these identities bind us?
Dr. Rachel Cason uses Life Story Therapies to help people find their voice, their tribe and their place in cultural identity complexity and transition.
