We all have stories. Can sharing these stories be a kind of medicine for us as we move through life? Dr. Eva Bleeker, assistant professor of chaplaincy and pastoral care, discusses narrative medicine and how important it is for pastoral caregivers to listen to and respect the stories that others tell about themselves. She also explores how narrative identity theory can help people align their stories with the greater narrative of God’s work in their lives as they process their past, present, and future.
