In June 2017, a group of Narrative Educators came together on the shores of Lake Champlain to explore innovative topics in teaching narrative therapy. We’re growing our network, and this directory shows the community of educators working together to co-create the teaching collaboratory behind the Educators Portal. This portal will build off of the spirit and ideas of the Vermont gathering of educators by providing a generative and supportive space for inspiration, conversation and resources specifically for those involved in narrative therapy teaching and education.
