This workshop will offer participants an experience of the ideas and basic practices of narrative therapy. The focus will include the narrative metaphor, the post-structuralist worldview, facilitating externalizing conversations and some ways of storying experience. We will also consider what makes a question useful within narrative practice. The format will include discussion, demonstration and exercises.

At Evanston Family Therapy Center we limit the number of participants in all of our workshops so that we can respond to the particular contexts and questions of group members. The workshop will focus on practice and also be fun.
