20 February, 2012 by Marian Way

We are very excited that Caitlin Walker has given a talk at TEDx Merseyside, which is now available on YouTube. TEDx, an offshoot of TED Talks, encourages local people to run TED-style events which bring people together to spread worthwhile ideas. Caitlin's 20-minute talk is entitled "Clean Questions and Metaphor Models: A Language on Inquiry". In it she tells the story of her quest to find a tool that would allow people to see the rules they and other people were living by and to find ways to challenge those rules in a non-judgemental way.
