Level 2 Fall Narrative Therapy Intensive | September 3-7

Wed, September 3, 2014

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.

Prerequisite: Participants must have attended a Level One Intensive (or its equivalent) in order to attend this workshop.
