Welcome to the Narrative Therapy Initiative
The Narrative Therapy Initiative is aligned with the principle that meaning-making through stories shapes lives, relationships, and communities. Our mission supports this Narrative Worldview and associated considerations of power in all relational and helping contexts.
NTI Director Stephen Gaddis is teaching a 10-week online narrative course through William James College's Continuing Education Program. "Introduction to Narrative Therapy: A Social Justice Approach" runs from January through March 2020, and consists of weekly online modules and two live web conferences.
WHAT IS NARRATIVE THERAPY?
Narrative Therapy is based on the worldview that relationships with stories constitute our experiences in life, including experiences of problems. From this perspective, considerations of power and meaning-making must be included in the ways problems are understood and help is offered.
The NTI training program includes a variety of courses that people can take individually or as part of a certificate program. Each course helps grow participants’ understandings of the Narrative Worldview and its implications in various helping contexts.
