Re-authoring Teaching is a global learning community of narrative therapy practitioners, teachers and enthusiasts from around the world. Our name is a twist on “reauthoring conversations,” otherwise associated with narrative therapy. We began in 2008 shortly after the untimely passing of Michael White, the co-founder of narrative therapy, with the vision of creating opportunities for members of the community to continue learning from and sharing knowledge with each other. What began as an online study group (The Narrative Practice & Collaborative Inquiry Study Group) has evolved into a blend of online and in-person offerings.

An Interactive Approach
In a recent workshop, Maggie Carey (Narrative Practices Adelaide) describes our interactive approach that brings together online learning and Vermont workshops.
We would also like to thank all of our colleagues and friends who helped build this learning community:
Members of The Collab (formerly known as “The Narrative Practice & Collaborative Inquiry Study Group) who helped create an “island of belonging,” and whose energy and archived posts are sprinkled throughout this site;
Participants in Refreshing the Spirit of the Work gatherings in Vermont. Together we discover new possibilities for trainings that bring together rigorous training, beautiful settings and good company.
Computer consultants Tom Nickel, Martin Howells, Sarah Webster and Caitlyn Cook who put many hours into earlier drafts.
Many colleagues and friends who have offered their steadfast support and ongoing help in developing these narrative resources: Sarah Brodsky, Maggie Carey, Rob Hall, Lisa Johnson, David Epston, SuEllen Hamkins, Kay Ingamells, Charley Lang, Shona Russell, Akansha Vaswani, Larry Zucker, — and all the additional narrative teachers collaborating on the development of our three online series.
Charlotte Crettenand (French), Martha Lopez-Hill, Ítalo Latorre Gentoso, Carolina Letelier Astorga and marcela polenco (Spanish), Heidrun Schulze and Madeleine Kamper (German) and Regina Jardim (Portuguese) – who not only help us with translation projects, but keep us aligned with our global commitments.
William Lax, Dean of Union University & Institute for ensuring continuing education credit for our courses, and to our India-based skillful technicians at Wisdmlabs.com.
Finally we extend a heartfelt special appreciation to Sarah Lenz at SMart Loft Studio, our talented graphic designer.
Together we are not only creating a collaboratory, but making a dream come true!
