Guided Autobiography as developed by Dr. James Birren at the University of Southern California is a structured opportunity for people to share stories from their life experiences. This lecture will describe the background, structure and benefits of participating in a Guided Autobiography group. Selected exercises will provide an experience of the Guided Autobiography process. (This lecture also serves as a preview of the Telling Life Stories Through Guided Autobiography class, taking place July 27-August 31, led by Susan Bond and Ramona Charles.)

Guided by a trained facilitator, participants are led through themes and activities that evoke memories of events, experiences and patterns of life. Each week each participant will write up to two pages of memories, stories or thoughts on that week's theme and share these with the group at the next session. The focus is on the sharing and no particular writing skills are required.
