    Yunzhe Wang Family History Narrative “A simple decision can change the world”, this is a few things I learned from movies and fiction novels. But I know there are millions of children who are desired to move to the big city and to find a job to change their life. The same idea lasts from generation to generation. But it’s never an easy thing to do. There are many ways for people to accomplish their goals, like business and marriage, but these can sometimes become controversial. The only thing which never change and are respected by others, is education. I remember that I was told my grandfather is one of the example for this situation. So this time, I ask my grandfather a few questions to see if my memory is precise and also to get more details…

    I hope that the life that I have worked so hard to create and now maintain, will allow my future students to thrive as individuals. My family was raised on many rules and many principles, but the most important influence that my entire family tree has in common is one thing: love. My teaching philosophy and life philosophy are very much alike. I want to love the unloved, teach the untaught, and believe in the ones that others have lost hope in. There is no such thing as a lost cause in my mind,…

    The narrative approach can be combined with multiple counseling strategies and theories to complement each other in order to provide a comprehensive therapeutic couple and family experience. Narrative is more than a client telling a story, the purpose is for the individual to participate in a re-telling the past “in the here and now” (Chrzastowski, 2011, p. 636). This process of externalizing the past from a cognitive point of view instead of an emotional perspective facilitates opportunities…

    my first practicum. While studying family systems theories over the past four semesters, I discovered that while all methods demonstrate validity and success, some models speak more thoroughly to my therapeutic style. The methods that guide my style the most are Experiential and Narrative Therapy. These models integrate well because they focus on the client’s strengths and not the pathology of the problem. In experiential the problem is because of emotion suppression and communication.…

    (Jacobs). These are direct words from Harriet Jacobs's slave narrative, The Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl. Throughout this narrative Jacobs reveals the harsh realities of slave life, but does so openly and boldly. I’ve found there was a recurring focus throughout the narrative. This focus was not only to show that slavery was awful, but to show how it affected men, children, families, and especially women. Harriet wanted to grab the attention of white Northerners, especially Northern…

    Regarding the first theme, in both narratives, participants described their roles as challenging. I could observe this by paying attention to the tone of their voices. They spoke in a loud voice and stressed some parts when talking about the daily situations in their families. For example, in line 14 of the transcript in the interview with Sandra, she pronounced the word ‘organise’ in a loud voice, while in line 3 of the transcript in the interview with Leonard, he put a special emphasis on the…

    This article is, in my opinion, an example of how personal narrative can sometime confuse the author’s purpose. In order to frame her arguments she discussed her experiences with her family, and specifically how she was born a twin to a stillborn sister.

Instead found myself…
