Please note, the prerequisite for this program is completion of NTC’s ‘LEVEL 1: Responding to Trauma’ program, or previous Narrative Therapy training.

Stories of trauma can contribute to a sense of hopelessness for persons of all ages, as well as the service providers they are consulting with. Narrative Therapy approaches to traumatic experience assist people to redevelop/develop a sense of personal agency and suggest that there is always another story. These are often subordinated stories of connection, hope, cherished values, and unacknowledged ways in which people respond to hardship.

In this Level 2 intensive, over three days together we will:
• strengthen double-listening skills (story of trauma/effects ‘and’ stories of responses, values and skills in living)
• build skills in asking re-membering questions to thicken preferred identity stories
• explore the taken-for-granted understandings of trauma and the politics of individualism
• demonstrate how discovering people’s responses to trauma can avoid retraumatizing
• learn how to move from individual to Collective Narrative Practice
• engage in a Collective Timeline exercise
• explore what is ‘Absent But Implicit’ in people’s expressions of distress, hopelessness
• discover skills in living and acts of resistance to violence and oppression

This program will be suitable to those who have an existing knowledge of Narrative Therapy. It will be relevant for counsellors , community workers, child protection workers and mental health practitioners working in settings such as private practice, hospitals, women’s shelters, sexual assault centers, schools, Violence Against Women (VAW) organizations, and other community-based and social service agencies.

Presented by Angel Yuen, with additional faculty TBA
