September 4 - 8 2017, with Terry Callahan

A chance to re-invigorate your narrative approach and to catch up on recent developments in the use of the narrative metaphor.

This 5 day intensive workshop is planned to provide opportunities for participants to extend on ideas and practices of narrative therapy they have gained through previous training. The features of this intensive include the particular interests of participants, as this will actively shape the agenda of the intensive. There will be ongoing exploration of the skills of narrative therapy including:

  • Engaging with the metaphor of landscape to support story development and as a review of the maps of narrative practice.

  • Extending on the skill of ‘scaffolding’ in our enquiry.

  • Exploring the ‘absent but implicit’ as a response to what has been problematic, and scaffolding this as an action.

  • Using narrative practice to respond to experiences of trauma.

  • Narrative approaches to experiences of 'failure'.
  • Drawing upon some recent developments in neuroscience (and in particular the neuroscience of emotion) to support our practice.

  • Re-visiting the ‘journey’ metaphor as a way of framing our conversations.

The focus of the intensive will be on the development of skills applicable in work with individuals, and families. The teaching methodology will include live stop-start interviews, review of therapeutic conversations/transcripts, sharing stories of work, gaining experience through structured exercises, descriptions of specific maps of narrative practice and group discussion. We hope to create a rigorous and lively learning experience where participants can further develop their ideas and skills in collaboration with others.

Cost: $850.00 per person.
