Narrative Therapy: An Introduction to Ideas & Practices (Part 1)
Narrative therapy is a collaborative and non-pathologizing approach to counselling and community work which centres people as the experts of their own lives. A narrative approach views problems as separate from people and assumes people as having many skills, abilities, values, commitments, beliefs and competencies that will assist them to change their relationship with the problems influencing their lives. It is a way of working that has a determination to bring forth political considerations that situate lives in broader social and historical contexts.  
Introduction to Narrative Therapy is a 2 part webinar series. This first part will introduce learners to the ideas and practices that shape narrative therapy. The second webinar will introduce practices and politics that shape narrative therapy and will be live on November 22, 2022.

This Webinar is FREE for Ontario Registered Social Workers (RSW), Registered Social Service Workers (RSSW) and Students of Social Work and Social Service Work Programs. Please note: If you are not an RSW, RSSW or student of these programs in Ontario, you may still attend but will be charged a nominal fee of $20.
