Narrative Therapy in Practice 

Dates & Times: Friday, December 3 & Saturday, December 4, 2021; 10:00am to 5:00pm EST

Location: Online via Zoom

Instructor: Suzanne Gazzolo, PhD, LCPC, and Matt Mooney, LICSW

Tuition: $250 for two-day course ($225, when participant completed in 2020 or 2021, NTI's "What Is Narrative Therapy?") 

This skill-based, two-day training is for people wanting to learn how narrative therapy ideas are put into practice in therapeutic settings. In particular, we explore externalizing practices and skills in the context of deconstructing and re-authoring therapy conversations. Clinical examples and experiential exercises will help support participants’ learning. Participants can expect to learn how narrative practitioners work to help people separate their lives from problems and identify new steps they can take that fit with their hopes and values.

We are excited to invite 12 people to join us for a writing program that has been shaped by our passion for narrative ideas, practices, and ethics.  Michael White believed that writing can help a person “experience one’s life as progressing.”  Both of us have experienced that personally.  We’ve also found that unlike anything else writing has helped us know what it can mean to become the primary author of our own lives.  We love that writing can be profoundly meaningful and healing, and simultaneously playful and creative.  Some of the spirit we intend to bring to this narrative writing program includes tenderness, attunement, intimacy, encouragement, enthusiasm, possibility, irreverence, discovery, and spontaneity.

​This year-long Narrative Certificate Program is for people interested in developing a rigorous personal understanding of the Narrative Worldview and its social justice ethics and practices. The goal of this course is to help participants establish a solid foundation for their professional identity and preferred ways of helping. Drawing from participants' personal and professional lived experiences, the course emphasizes an experiential-learning philosophy and community-building orientation. There is an expectation that participants will have had some formal introduction to the Narrative Worldview prior to the course. NTI's one-day "What Is Narrative Therapy?" and two-day "Narrative Therapy in Practice" trainings, or their equivalent, is required for registration. (See above for upcoming dates and times for these two trainings.)
