Key Outcomes Understand narrative approaches to community work

Course Description

Learn about narrative therapy as a respectful, engaging, and a creative way to work with young people and families. Narrative approaches support young people and their families to:

  • reclaim authorship of their own lives in the face of vulnerability
  • take steps toward their hopes and dreams
  • promote the restorative position of ‘being with’ people rather than ‘doing to’ people.

In this interactive workshop, explore the concepts behind narrative therapy, harness opportunities to practice with other students, and discuss narrative skills and techniques.
