Narrative Therapy Course (in collaboration with The Dulwich Centre, Australia)
Dulwich Centre Foundation in Adelaide, Australia, is one of the key ‘homes’ of narrative practice. The centre is involved in narrative approaches to therapy and community work, training, publishing, supporting practitioners in different parts of the world, and co-hosting international conferences. This course will begin in April 2020 with two days of training. After that there will be 3 more teaching blocks in the year ahead. In total there will 12 days of face-to-face training besides which there will be a requirement to read continuously and submit written reflections based on the readings. Feedback will be provided on these written reflections through the year. Overall it will be a skills-based course in narrative approaches to therapy and community work. In this way, it will be quite specific, meticulous and will be most helpful for psychologists, therapists, counsellors, mental health social workers, and psychiatrists working with children, young people, adults and families. Dulwich Centre Training Faculty and the faculty at Children First will work as a collective in this course.
