Are you teaching at an academic institution? Are you looking for others who are teaching or researching narrative practice? Are you in search of narrative teaching materials?
Our Partners, Workshop Presenters, and Narrative Online Faculty are working together to build a supportive network and narrative practice resource library available to higher education institutions.

Our Shared Vision

After eight years of preparation, we are now equipped to:

  1. Create courses for academic programs. In collaboration with The Taos Institute, we’ve created a 13 week (full semester) course called Honoring our Legacy (see below).
  2. Offer an of our current courses (Narrative Therapy: Foundations & Key Concepts, Queer Counseling & Narrative Practice, An Introduction to Rich Story Development)  to university and graduate programs. Currently, several professors and students are finding ways to pilot courses as independent study.
  3. Adapt any of the lessons in our online courses into learning modules to augment existing courses.
  4. Become a clearinghouse for faculty to find relevant videos, online presentations and other online resources to augment your courses.
  5. Develop a network of narrative teachers to exchange ideas, resources and contacts for teaching and research.

We need your help to make this vision come true of together “creating a collaboratory.” Please contact us here if you wish to join us in this venture!
