Narrative Therapy, Trauma & The Affective Turn

What are some considerations in integrating other approaches with a foundation in narrative therapy? The affective turn- as described by Gerald Monk and Navid Zamani -as concerned with the connection between the mind, brain, and body, and its connection to the language of feelings, intentions, and choices which is both discursive and non-discursive. The turn to affect pays attention to what is beyond language and the discursive and focuses on what is located within the body. How can Narrative Therapy honor history while bridging with other embodied approaches?
