Tensive Conflict and Meaning

Lecture no. 8 from the course: The Art of Storytelling: From Parents to Professionals

Tensive Conflict and Meaning

Taught by Professor Hannah B. Harvey | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses

Dissect the layered process professional storytellers use when preparing to tell a tale, which involves an interconnected cycle of talking, writing, imaging, playing, and rehearsing. Explore the concept of “tensiveness,” the dynamic quality that reveals a story’s opposing forces; then step back from one of your stories to see the potential relationships between the larger parts of the narrative.
