This description covers both parts 1&2 of the webinar. Attend just one or both… your choice. Participants will learn the basics principles and key concepts of Narrative Therapy. Counselors will learn to listen to the client's story more deeply, listening for key themes, supporting the client to deconstruct their narrative, write a new narrative moving towards self-compassion and healing.
The counselor supports the client to adjust the stories they tell about their life in order to bring about positive change and enhanced mental wellbeing. Narrative therapy's approach sees people as the experts on their own lives and views the person as separate from their problem perspective. “Trauma is not who you are, it is what happened in your life without an empathic witness.” Peter Levine
