Narrative therapy is a powerful modality that helps our clients identify and reinterpret the stories that shape their lives. In doing so, clients can begin to see their struggles from a more empowering perspective. In this webinar, we will explore the foundations of narrative therapy, along with practical narrative therapy-based interventions and strategies that you can use with clients.

In addition, we will explore the Hero’s Journey: one of the most powerful forms of storytelling that can be used for healing. By learning the components of the Hero’s Journey, you’ll be able to assist clients in viewing their distress from a different and meaningful perspective. This form of narrative story-telling allows clients to explore their own history and the role that their mental health issues will play in it as the chapters in their lives unfold. Using the Hero’s Journey framework, you can help clients find meaning in suffering, as they discover how to become the protagonists of their own life story.

The training will be interactive and experiential. Please be sure to have a notebook on hand.
