We simply could not have developed this website, The Collab Salon, Online Courses, Higher Education Teaching Topics and other Resources without the help of our partners. Simply put, “It takes a village to create a learning community.” Together we are co-creating working relationships based on Re-authoring Teaching’s five guiding principles. We continue to generate collaborative training ventures with existing and new partners—a whole world of possibilities is emerging, and each partnership is unique. Reach out to us with your ideas!

Our Evolution

From the very beginning, Narrative Practices Adelaide supported our efforts, and embraced online learning as a component of their Certificate Programme.  Along the way, The Taos Institute provided mini-grants to build bridges between social constructionist approaches and narrative therapy, and to support course development.  Narrative Approaches has made many online resources available, and shares our commitment to honor the legacy of David Epston. Other partnerships soon began, as we embarked together on creating online courses, Collab Salons and Higher Education materials. Re-creating Narrative Therapy—our commitment to finding creative ways to support our international peers in translating into their languages and grounding their practice of narrative in local cultural heritage—brings forth many rich conversations and cross-pollination. With Across Narrative Generations: Co-Sparking with Emerging Voices  as one of the hot topics for the new decade, together we are committed to partnership relationships toward sustaining the future of narrative therapy.

Building a Collaborative Training Network

Together we share a commitment to preserve, develop, and extend the legacy of narrative therapy. Our hope is to create a central place to find: 1) training events; 2) online courses;  and 3) narrative training intensives, international diplomas, and apprenticeship programs.
