AT 557  Therapeutic Storytelling and Interpersonal Neurobiology

This class will integrate the interpersonal neurobiology perspective with Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey to provide a way to better understand how stories can shape, inform and affect our lives. We will examine the three common structural elements (departure, initiation and return) of stories and explore the parts or archetypes that link stories together into universal themes. The fascinating world of brain science will help inform us about how the brain responds to words and how storytelling affects attachment and emotional/cognitive learning.  Pass/No Pass grading not available. Cross-listed as AT 457  for undergraduate credit and as AT 057  for continuing education. 1 cr.
