In the above video, the Western Massachusetts Peer Supervision Group describes some of the values that guide their work and consultation with each other. Below we add reflections from the NextGen Collaboratory to the question: What is your narrative backbone?

What is your narrative backbone?

Building contemporary narrative therapy on what matters most to us.

In May 2024, we began the NextGen Collaboratory, a series that explores contemporary and emerging narrative practices by reaffirming our narrative foundations. In preparation, we asked the conversationalists – all experienced narrative therapy teachers and practitioners – to identify the foundational ideas, practices, and ethics that matter most to them. We then added their words, recordings, and images to the following Padlet.

We then started an additional space for others to add their reflections.
