Meaningful Research. How can research nourish us and keep us in a soulful place of true inquiry? How can the creation of an artful research theory contribute to the transformative work of the counselor and psychotherapist? How can the research process itself be more playful, creative and inventive while still being grounded in reality and truly useful? This keynote looks at the relationship between skill and inspiration as essential ingredients for meaningful research. The manner with which we hold our questions changes everything.
