We begin with a brief audio recording – and transcript- in which Narrative Practices Adelaide describes Michael’s intention to grow narrative therapy trainings. Then we add several training initiatives in training. Please send us some of your own! Note: Further description of Higher Education initiatives can be found in Next Generations.
Bringing Michael’s Presence into Teaching
In April, 2011, Maggie Carey, Shona Russell and Rob Hall reflect on the growing interest in narrative practice, which does not rely on Michael being there. The ideas and practices are having a life of their own that is being recognized, people are drawn to that, without having known Michael….bringing the spirit of the work in terms of that careful, ethical position.
Narrative Practices Adelaide
The teaching faculty at Narrative Practices Adelaide includes Maggie Carey, Shona Russell, Rob Hall, Lisa Johnson and Terry Callahan. Maggie and Shona have been involved in the teaching of narrative therapy and community work for many years, both in Australia and internationally. Maggie and Shona offer skills based workshops in Adelaide for people new to narrative practice and for experienced practitioners. Relevant to working with individuals, families, groups and communities, these trainings include a year long certificate programme in narrative practice. The focus of NPA workshops and training programs focuses on rich story development, narrative approaches to children and families, working with families and children living with disabilities, narrative approaches to supervision, men, trauma and violence, and community assignments.

Narrative Therapy India
The Ummeed Child Development Center – one of the premier non-profit organizations in India working with children with disabilities- is taking a number of initiatives to offer trainings in narrative therapy. Along with Narrative Practices Adelaide, it is an honor for Re-authoring Teaching to partner with this group, to witness their commitment to high quality training, and to support their growing number of training initiatives.
Narrative Initiatives San Diego
Narrative Initiatives San Diego (NISD) was originally founded as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 2006 by Dr. Jan Ewing, Ph.D., LMFT, under the name ‘The Center for Therapeutic Collaboration’ and in connection with the Center for Health and Wellbeing. For over 10 years the organization has been serving the San Diego community with collaborative and transformative mental health services. As a supervisor accredited by the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (AAMFT), Jan’s team of professionals have mentored graduate counseling students and pre-licensed counselors completing their clinical training for licensure by the state of California. Since its inception, the organization has emphasized providing high-quality, culturally-competent and affordable mental health services to low-income, uninsured, underserved and marginalized populations. In 2012, the company changed its legal name to Narrative Initiatives San Diego.
Re-authoring Teaching, Inc. is a consortium of narrative practice teachers, practitioners and enthusiasts from around the world who promote training and professional development in a narrative approach to therapy, organizational, and community work. The term, “Re-authoring Teaching” is a play on the term “Re-authoring Conversations” that Michael White and David Epston coined in their original description of narrative therapy. As a 501 (c)3 Non-Profit Organization, our collaborative venture shares expertise through training opportunities and online learning resources designed for practice, reflection, replenishment and community building. We seek to embody that spirit of collaboration and community by being such a community, and we invite you to join us in preserving, developing, and extending the legacy of narrative therapy.
