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):

The Success of 'Failure'

July 23rd, 10am to 4pm

What is 'Narrative Therapy'?

August 28th, 10am to 5pm

Working with People Facing Despair, Unworthiness and/or Suicidal Thoughts

October 22nd, 10am to 6pm



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.
