Re-membering Conversations and Internalised Other Interviewing (IOI) seek to reengage with significant people from personal history who have, in important ways, shaped who we have become. They belong to our life stories, to our prior selves. They contribute to a multivoiced, multibodied and multistoried sense of self. We will consider how people show this self to others and how they hold others in memory. Such explorations can have significant therapeutic implications.
