Using a Narrative Therapy approach, Dr. Winslade respectfully and collaboratively examines the stories that inform and shape his client's experience and listens for the history and pattern of how those stories are constructed. After separating the stories that work from those non-preferred problematic stories, Winslade guides the client in authoring more satisfying, preferable stories of strength and hope.

Eating Animals tells the story of the beginning of the end of factory farming. Through the intimate narratives of several farmers dedicated to bringing their trade back to its roots, the film explores the notion of stepping away from the practices of the past 40 years that have polluted our environment, endangered our health, and caused us all to be complicit in the inhumane treatment of animals. Looking at the costs we've incurred as our country has become dominated by massive industrial complexes, Eating Animals paints a picture of a future where traditional farming is the only way forward. 2017. 95 minutes
In this edition of Make, Create, Innovate, we explore an area close to all our hearts or rather our stomachs; food and how technology is changing what and how we eat. We first explore how technology can help with the growing problem of food security and sustainability with an inventor who has developed an innovative approach to help stabilize fish stocks. His nets contain special portals that attract undesirable fish and those from endangered lists using special wavelengths of light. These fish are then able to escape the net and help replenish the population. And we travel to Barcelona to explore how food-preneur, Marius Robles and his Re-Imagine X group, are re-imagining the future of food with everything from 3D printed meals to a nutrition paste that could replace our normal meals – using technology to change our attitudes and approach to food. 2016. 11 minutes
