Monday 19th April 2021 A Practical Approach to Narrative Therapy: Reclaiming lives and understanding shame
Workshop

This workshop, facilitated by Tim Donovan and Dale Johns, demonstrates the application of narrative therapy approaches to counselling people who have been subject to acts of oppression. The workshop includes a specific account of Dale’s experiences of childhood sexual violence. What is presented will contest traditional ideas around counselling. There will be an opportunity to explore your beliefs around vulnerability and shame in your own work.

The workshop will provide practical ways to use narrative therapy approaches for deconstructing unhelpful cultural discourses or myths; for identifying and strengthening the skills and knowledge people have regarding their own problems; and for encouraging connection with preferred ways of being.
