Using Narrative Work with Indigenous Families

This course provides a practice-based introduction to using narrative therapy and other creative processes with Indigenous families. You will get to explore the principles, philosophies and concepts underpinning the narrative approach.

This course includes experiential exercises which enable you to practice these skills in a supportive environment and get a feeling of what it might feel like from a client and family perspective.

What will you learn?

By attending this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the theory and philosophy behind narrative therapy, including what makes a session a narrative one; ‘the problem is the problem not the person’, narrative politics and ethics towards client and worker, local versus expert knowledge and promoting a person’s preferred story
  • Describe the core concepts of narrative therapy: externalising the problem, and building the new preferred story
  • Adapt and identify the range of creative processes and activities and apply these to make them relevant for your workspace and families you work with

Relevant Audience

Counsellors, therapists, case managers, and health and community workers who are interested in exploring the use of this model for their work.

Workshop Style
