Narrative therapy is based on the assumption that life is multi-storied. By understanding how those stories interact with identity, emotions, relationships, and actions, therapists can deconstruct what’s hurting their clients, and reconstruct a new way of being. Narrative therapy, based on the work of Michael White and David Epstein, gives therapists lines of inquiry that take clients from where they are to where they want to be.
In this 4-hour Live (ZOOM) Workshop, practitioners will learn assumptions that make up narrative therapy and come away with practical ways to up their clinical skills that move clients forward fast!
Learn three central maps of narrative therapy, dual listening, metaphor, scaffolding conversations, therapeutic posture, and unique responses, and come away with the ability to use these in your next client sessions.
You’ll dive deep into Externalizing Conversations, Statement of Position, Re-Authoring Conversations Map, Landscapes of Identity, Personal Agency, and the Absent but Implicit Map.
