Cultivating Community

Re-authoring Teaching has a keen interest in the future of narrative therapy. Together we are committed to preserving, developing, and extending the legacy of Narrative Therapy. We’re working to build a sense of close community that brings together the vast global network of narrative practitioners.  In other words, we seek to embody that spirit of collaboration and community by being such a community.  Look here to find out what peers, colleagues, teachers and friends in the narrative world are up to and join our first Community Project – Building on the Legacy of Michael White.

Building on the Legacy of Michael White

A Special Year: the 10th Anniversary of Michael White’s Passing

Narrative Initiatives San Diego and Re-Authoring Teaching

Co-Hosting A Narrative Gathering in San Diego

And Creating A Community Online Project

Ten years ago this April, we lost one of the founders of Narrative therapy:  a brilliant mind, skillful interviewer, cherished mentor and a dear friend. As we approach this milestone, we come together to honor Michael’s legacy in a variety of ways. Re-authoring Teaching is excited to partner with Narrative Initiatives San Diego (NISD) to offer Building on the Legacy of Michael White: A Decade of Narrative Developments (March 28-30, 2018) on Coronado Island, San Diego. As a companion to this narrative gathering, we wish to pool the collective influence of Michael White into an online resource that paints a picture of his legacy through many voices, perspectives and mediums. Together we will gather a bouquet of materials from the gardens that have sprung up from the seeds planted by our mentor, Michael White.
