The Craft & Art of Narrative Therapy Enquiry | June 25-26

Tue, June 25, 2013

Location: Evanston, Illinois, USA
Presenter: David Epston

What is a good question? What is a good story? And why do some stories trump others? This is an intensive workshop exploring the craft of narrative enquiry.

Participants should have some familiarity with narrative therapy to fully participate in this somewhat unconventional two day intensive training. It will draw upon ideas of 'situated learning' (Lave and Wenger, 1991) or apprenticeship training. David will teach through live interviews he will conduct with one considerable difference - the problems discussed will be 'over and done with' and therefore such interviews will permit persistent 'stopping and starting'. David will take time to 'reflect-on-action' (Schon: The Reflective Practitioner: How Professionals Think, 1983) in almost present time. The attendees as well as the interviewee will be enabled to 'look into' David's thinking thought for thought and even word for word. From moment to moment, David will 'situate' his practice, and attendees will be invited to query him in order to satisfy their curiosities. Responses to these questions usually lead to wide ranging discussions.

Target Audience: Participants should have familiarity with narrative ideas and practices
