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.
Our trainings are currently offered online via Zoom (EST):
Narrative Therapy in Practice
April 23 & 24, 10am to 5pm
Authoring Your Life
Every Tuesday May 4th - June 8th, 7pm - 9pm; and Saturday June 19th, noon to 4pm
The Success of 'Failure'
July 23rd, 10am to 4pm
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.
