NTI Folx Tales: A Celebration of the Narrative Worldview reflection 

Thank you to everyone who joined us for NTI Folx Tales: A Celebration of the Narrative Worldview on April 25 & 26.

No matter how you came to be at Folx Tales, your presence contributed in incredibly meaningful ways. We hope your time at Folx Tales was an immersion into narrative therapy and community work that supported your narrative skills and preferred ways of bringing the Narrative Worldview into your life and work. All of us at NTI loved being in person with you, sharing hopes, ideas, and practices; making new relationships; and growing our community. We are particularly excited about making the hootenanny a NTI tradition!

This Folx Tales gathering was borne out of a wish to honor a hope Steve expressed during NTI's 2020 Linking Lives Storython, for stories to be told and witnessed in community in ways that make ripples build into waves of love and meaning. Your presence, your stories, your tender witnessing, we believe were such beautiful testimony to the intimacy and vulnerability Steve held so precious. 

We're excited to continue to reflect on our experiences of this event and use your insights to dream up future NTI gatherings. 

If you didn't attend and don't want to miss out on our next event, please sign up for our mailing list below. 

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.

Linking Therapists' Lives Through Shared Practice: A Narrative Consultation Group, 2024–2025

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 help participants grow their understandings of the Narrative Worldview and its implications in various helping contexts. The training progression is designed to help people develop their narrative skills through practice, more practice, and more practice.
