What happens when we shift from viewing our bodies as a single entity to experiencing our bodies as a community of diverse members each with their own experience, position, and stories? This consultation group is for folx who are interested in centering post-structural, narrative practice, intersectional feminisms, and community ideas in our conversations with our bodies and in accompanying individuals, couples, families, and communities in conversations that are inclusive of their bodies. Over 6 weekly sessions, the invitation will be to engage with positioning/ethics/ideas, fragments of practice videos, collective experiential exercises, and discussion around possibilities and implications for each participant’s context.
6 sessions fortnightly on Wednesdays for 1.5 hours: March 1, 15 & 29, April 12 & 26, May 10, 2023. We will form two groups for two different time zones: 1pm and 5pm EST.

Are you feeling a sense of isolation and disenchantment in your work? Do you feel you are being recruited into stories of dominant ideas of what a “good therapist” is or stories that are pathologizing of the people who consult you? We invite you to resist these stories and ideas in this community consultation group and think together about what you would prefer your practice to embody. Rocio and Akansha will create space for conversations about preferred ethics, consultation with your insider knowledges and wisdom, and articulation of consonant practices and ways of being. They will draw on their lived experiences of working in sites of “modern power” and support you in inhabiting your narrative multilingual voice. This group is for narratively informed practitioners, familiar with narrative ways of working.
with Amy Druker
This 8 week bi-weekly series is for people who are interested in exploring their relationship with narrative questions. It is not a “how to” ask “better” narrative questions, but an invitation to explore the types of questions we feel drawn to asking, and why? An invitation to explore our hopes in asking questions, and the ethics we are striving to uphold in asking the questions we ask. The format of sessions will involve live interviews. Each person will have an opportunity to be interviewed by the facilitator, or by another participant and to participate as an outsider witness. Participants will have a chance to ask questions to both the interviewee and the interviewer.
Please Contact us if you would like to be on the waiting list for Amy’s next group.

Group is Now FULL
Are you wanting to step forward in your teaching, supervising and/or research contributions to Narrative Therapy? Do you have some dreams of how Narrative Therapy could continue to evolve and inspire? We are in search of experienced next-generation narrative practitioners eager to contribute to the preservation and evolution of narrative therapy, while infusing the foundational concepts and practices with your own particular voice, spirit, and cultural legacy. With the intention of witnessing and supporting the developing work of Narrative Therapy’s emerging leaders, Peggy Sax, Charley Lang, Larry Zucker and invited guests will guide this group, drawing from a narrative pedagogy built on the ethics of kindness, curiosity, and accountability that have inspired us throughout the years. Our hope is that participation in the group might become a rite of passage marking a fuller, more rewarding way of working, infused with a spirit of discovery, strengthening one’s own voice, and creative expression.

WAITING LIST FOR FUTURE GROUPS
The Migration of Identity Consultation Group is for people who are familiar with narrative therapy practice and migration of identity in an experiential way and have a particular interest in unpacking ideas and practices that can accompany people/families/communities in times of movement (chosen and imposed), transition and liminality. While this can attend to large movements, it is also inclusive of small moments in daily life and moment-by-moment exchanges in conversations and relationships. Together we will explore our experiences accompanying people in these movements through sharing stories of practice and engaging in experiential exercises.
Contact us. if you would like to be put on the waiting list for one of Poh’s future groups.
with David Epston, Kay Ingamells & Tom Carlson
Have you ever found yourself in awe of the magic of the questions of David Epston? Have you ever sat in wonder at the capacity of such magic filled questions to transport people into entirely new worlds filled with possibility? Have you longed to bring the magic of David’s practice into your own?This is a unique course is designed to serve as an apprenticeship in the artistry of narrative practice. Rather than being taught in a traditional way your learning will happen through an immersive apprenticeship that takes place inside of your own practice. Each month you will present a transcript of your practice which will be studied in detail by your apprenticers (David, Tom or Kay). In their study of your transcript, they will amend your transcript by adding alternative questions (questions that they themselves would ask) into your transcript and then meet with you for an hour to teach you advanced counter-storying practices.
