              What does it mean to be white and American? White Folks moves beyond the dominant critical methodologies of examining 'whiteness', to conceptualize white people in a way that is unafraid to confront, head on, the violence at the core of white racial selves, but that also that ill...uminates conflicts and complexities there. The book focuses on the the authors' own experience of growing up in a small, rural community in northern Wisconsin, and the stories of people from that community, drawn from a series of in-depth interviews.

              When Blake Paxton was 18, his mother Ann died at home from a pulmonary embolism. At Home with Grief describes the continuing bonds we have with our loved ones after death, exploring experiences with prolonged grief, personal and communal memory, and family communication. After An...n's death, Blake set out on a personal journey to keep his mother's memory by interviewing relatives and the doctors involved in his mother's care. Through this intensely personal story, Blake reflects on researcher reflexivity, ethics in the field, and methodological considerations for adapting transcript data into narratives. It is not only an autoethnographic story, but a story about doing autoethnography and all the transformative possibilities these types of projects can offer, including contributing to continuous bonds. The book concludes by introducing several possibilities for scholarship that connects both communication theory and the continuing bonds paradigm.

              Therapy, Stand-Up, and the Gesture of Writing: Towards Creative-Relational Inquiry
               

              Therapy, Stand-Up, and the Gesture of Writing: Towards Creative-Relational Inquiry (Hardback)

              By Wyatt, Jonathan

              Therapy, Stand-Up, and the Gesture of Writing is a sharp, lively exploration of the connections between therapy, stand-up comedy, and writing as a method of inquiry; and of how these connections can be theorized through the author's new concept, creative-relational inquiry. Engag...ing, often poignant, stories combine with rich scholarship to offer the reader provocative, original insights. Wyatt writes about his work as a therapist with his client, Karl, as they meet and talk together. He tells stories of his experiences attending comedy shows in Edinburgh and of his own occasional performances. He brings alive the everyday profound through vignettes and poems of work, travel, visiting his mother, mourning his late father, and more. The book's drive, however, is in bringing together therapy, stand-up and writing as a method of inquiry to mobilise theory, drawing in particular from Deleuze and Guattari, the new materialisms and affect theory. Through this diffractive work, the text formulates and develops creative-relational inquiry. With its combination of fluent story-telling and smart, theoretical propositions, Therapy, Stand-up and the Gesture of Writing offers compelling possibilities both for qualitative scholars who have an interest in narrative, performative and embodied scholarship, and those who desire to bring current, complex, theories to bear upon their research practices.

              Writing the Self in Bereavement: A Story of Love, Spousal Loss, and Resilience
               

              Writing the Self in Bereavement: A Story of Love, Spousal Loss, and Resilience (Hardback)

              By Lengelle, Reinekke

              In Writing the Self in Bereavement: A Story of Love, Spousal Loss and Resilience, Reinekke Lengelle uses her abilities as a researcher, poet, and professor of therapeutic writing to tell a heartfelt and fearless story about her grief after the death of her spouse and the year and... a half following his diagnosis, illness, and passing. This book powerfully demonstrates that writing can be a companion in bereavement. It uses and explains the latest research on coming to terms with spousal loss without being prescriptive. Integrated with this contemporary research are stories, poetry, and reflections on writing as a therapeutic process. The author unflinchingly explores a number of themes that are underrepresented in existing resources: how one deals with anger associated with loss, what a healthy response might be to unfinished business with the deceased, continuing conversations with the beloved (even for agnostics and atheists), ongoing sexual desire, and secondary losses. As a rare book where an author successfully combines a personal story, heart-rending poetry, up-to-date research on grief, and an evocative exploration of taboo topics in the context of widowhood, Writing the Self in Bereavement is uniquely valuable for those grieving a spouse or other loved one, those supporting others in bereavement, and those interested in the healing power of poetry and life writing. Researchers on death and dying, grief counsellors, and autoethnographers will also benefit from reading this resonant resource on love and loss.
