Interpersonal Neurobiology and the Journey through Change: Joseph Campbell, the Hero's Journey, and Narrative Psychology



Presented and developed by Gregory Crosby, MA, LPC, CGP, FAGPA


The client's therapeutic process is a mythic journey-one full of struggles and challenges as they move through the change process.  This workshop integrates Joseph Campbell's mythic journey of the hero, William Bridges' stages of transitions, and Norcross, DiClemente, Prochaska's stages of change model with the latest findings of interpersonal neurobiology.

Join us to explore the universal journey of change that takes place in individual, group, and family therapy.  We also integrate storytelling and popular culture symbols as therapeutic metaphors to better understand how the brain works during the change process.

Workshop objectives:

  • Understand the psychological transitions in therapy through the IPND lens
  • Learn the mythological underpinning of the hero's journey, the stages of the journey and how it relates to the therapeutic process and IPNB perspective
  • Become familiar with therapeutic metaphors from mythology and popular culture to enhance change and understand how story telling impacts the brain
