Coaching psychology has long debated the topic of the core aims and objectives of coaching. As introduced by Coaching Psychologists such as Grant (2017) and Stelter (2014), while differing in their approach, both suggest that coaching is moving towards deeper sustainability, personal meaning, values and identity work, also known as third generation coaching. And yet, as a profession, we still lack substantial evidence-based frameworks and models to help support coaches in this deep exploratory work. This session will build on the view of third generation coaching by exploring a new model for biographical inquiry called Biographical Dimensions of Meaning Making (BDMM)©. Furthermore, the speaker introduces a new way of exploring the non-conscious in coaching, described as the intersectionality of the past, present and future of meaning making structures.
