Angel Yuen MSW RSW
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.
This webinar will introduce learners to the ideas and practices that shape narrative therapy.
This Webinar is FREE for everyone!
