through Sunday, September 7, 2014
Location: Evanston, Illinois, USA
Presenters: Jill Freedman and Gene Combs
We have designed this one week intensive training for people who have already attended a Level One intensive or its equivalent and would like to more richly develop their knowledge and skills of narrative therapy. Because we limit attendance to a small group, we can tailor this skill-building workshop to the interests and contexts of each group member. Areas we will address include:
Working with multiple ways of moving from problematic to preferred stories, including asking about the absent but implicit and initiatives and agency
Creating documents and linking lives to enhance the development of preferred stories
Developing experience-near questions to expose normalizing judgments and discourses
Using narrative ideas in a variety of contexts — individual, couple, and family therapy, and community work
Weaving practices together in ways that follow the preferences of those we work with
Slowing down interviews to explore the effects of different practices and to expand our understanding of the micro-practices of narrative therapy.
Our methods will include skill-building exercises, reviewing videos and transcripts, engaging in interviews together, and group discussion. Because this intensive workshop is limited to 12 participants Jill and Gene can respond to the questions, interests and contexts of each group member.
