Wed 18 April 4pm Modelling with Metaphor and Transdisciplinary Research

Teatime session in the Transdisciplinary Common Room (TDC), Fletcher Quad. Join us at 4pm. There's always a pot of tea on the go.

Jackie Calderwood
A sociable, participatory introduction to Clean Language and Symbolic Modelling, with the invitation to explore our visions for a flourishing TDC. ‘Clean’ refers to the body of work initiated by counseling psychologist David Grove, and includes techniques utilising language, space and emergent knowledge. Taking a systemic approach, ‘Clean’ combines flexible, focused questions with client-generated metaphors which together facilitate self-modelling, information mining, change-work and rich communication.

Jackie Calderwood is in the third year of a practice-based PhD with the IOCT. Since encountering ‘Clean Language’ two years ago she has been learning, applying and interrogating the potential of ‘Clean’ as an arts methodology and research tool.

For (optional) background information have a look at these TedX talks:
