About The Event

"Narrative therapy is a method of therapy that separates the person from the problem and encourages people to rely on their own skill sets to minimize the problems that exist in their everyday lives" 

Language plays an essential role in how we define our identities, boundaries, expectations and motivation.

Narrative therapy is an approach to counselling and community work that is based upon respect for the individual's story and places the person as the expert in their own lives.

In this workshop you will learn techniques such as reframing, resourcing, storytelling, discerning betwwen personal identity and problem identity. It is likely that the life story you tell yourself and others changes depending on who is asking, your mood, and whether you feel like you are still at the beginning, in the middle, or at the end of your most salient story. We use stories to inform others, connect over shared experiences, say when we feel wronged, and even to sort out our thoughts and feelings. Stories organize our thoughts, help us find meaning and purpose, and establish our identity in a confusing and sometimes lonely world. 


Learn how to write "a life story" that talks about our recovery, uniqueness and strengths.




Learn key concepts in Narrative therapy

Who should attend

Anyone who is in a therapeutic relationship with people. We all seek to communicate our needs, define our "self" and what has happened to us, find meaning and organise our world.

“The problem is the problem, the person is not the problem.” – Michael White and David Epston
