13 - 15 May 2015, 'Becoming' a Narrative Therapist.

Three Day Advanced Practice Workshop with Maggie Carey

Many narrative practitioners find that they need a regular boost of narrative conversations with others in order to keep themselves and their practice fresh in their work. Appreciating this fits with the understanding that the narrative approach is not a set body of work that is learnt once and then we ‘have it’ forever. In order to develop a sense of agency in using a narrative approach it is important to have opportunities for ongoing reflection on practice, and to be supported in making links and connections with what the narrative metaphor has to offer us in our work.

The concept from Gilles Deleuze of ‘becoming’ as opposed to ‘being’ fits nicely here, and in this workshop we will explore processes that can support us in the notion of ‘becoming a narrative therapist’ rather than the more fixed idea of ‘being a narrative therapist’.

In this workshop we will explore more of the Deleuzian concepts that Michael White was finding energising of his practice and see how these might support us in how we conceive of what we are doing in our conversations. We will also look at the fast developing links between the narrative approach and the many findings from neuroscience and explore ways in which these findings can support us in our practice.

There will be the opportunity in this workshop to look closely at the maps of narrative practice through Maggie conducting live interviews of participants and then drawing on these interviews as way of focussing upon and unpacking practice.

Adelaide will be in Festival mode at this time and lots will be happening all through the city!

Cost: $425.00 per person.
