Where can I learn more about narrative practice?

This community project builds on one of Michael White and David Epston’s steadfast intentions: Strengthening a Collaborative Narrative Network.  We wish to recognize the Dulwich Centre  for its central role in developing narrative approaches to therapy and community work, training, publishing, and supporting practitioners in different parts of the world.  In the spirit of communities in connection (rather than individuals in competition), our vision is to bring together a network of independent narrative training initiatives around the world  that share the commitment to preserve, develop, and extend the legacy of narrative therapy.  Together with our partners, we aspire to create a central place to find, coordinate and support high quality independent narrative trainings around the world : 1) training events; 2) online courses;  and 3) narrative training intensives, international diplomas, and apprenticeship programs.

We’ve done our best to convert local times to New York Time.  Please double check since sometimes we discover errors due to changes in daylight savings times.

NOTE: This project is a work in progress. We are very interested in hearing from you. Is this useful to you? What might make it better? Please contact us!
