              At Home with Grief: Continued Bonds with the Deceased

              At Home with Grief: Continued Bonds with the Deceased (Hardback)

              By Paxton, Blake

              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.
