What is map and talk? 

  • It is an interactive method of putting key words spontaneously on paper between us to keep track of our conversations and stories as we talk.   

  • It helps us guide, shape and review what we are saying and where the conversation is taking us.   

  • The process enhances the experience of talking and is an aid to therapy, reflective practice and any form of serious discussion. 

  • The focus of map and talk can be on the words we are using, the patterns of interaction emerging in the story and the links we are making.   

  • It can be used  therapeutically, educationally, organisationally, politically and conversationally whether with individuals or in groups.

Map and talk is best when it's done side by side, next to each other on a table with a big piece of paper to enable effective tracking and following of the conversation. 

Having given therapy, supervision and training online for the past ten years I have found that having a camera that allows me to share the map as I am writing it increidble useful. . This naturally led to the idea that teaching videos would eb vaulabe and led to the creation of these "hand drawn videos. This series of ten was made to give the basics of how to map and talk. But expect more to come soon. Have a look and see how the concetp feels for you.
