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.

This pause also gave us time to review our offerings and to look ahead. How can we continue to grow and sustain Narrative Therapy and each other for years to come? Now, in collaboration with a new generation of narrative practitioners, we’re making some exciting new plans. Please join us as we unveil Re-Authoring Teaching 2.0!
Re-Authoring Teaching 2.0
We are proud of the active learning community that we are co-creating. Here’s what’s new and happening behind-the-scenes.
Pre-sale for New Horizons in Narrative Therapy, Affect & the Body starts August 31, 2023. You can begin this self-paced online course on September 30, 2023, or anytime after. If you sign up early, you will take the course with the first cohort including the opportunity to participate in two live Zoom sessions with course contributors.
Beginning in March, 2024, The Next Gen Collab Salon will replace our current monthly Collab Salon. Join co-hosts Poh Lin Lee & Akansha Vaswani-Bye for this series of six bi-monthly 4-hour mini-workshops, founded on learnings from our Collab and Workshop experiences.
Helping People Beyond the Preferred Self: Concrete strategies to develop a more intense, sustainable, and flourishing self, a 3-hour online workshop with Marie-Nathalie Beaudoin, will take place on Monday, January 22, 2024 from 1:00 – 4:00 pm New York Time.
During this time of significant shifts in our social and ecological world, what ideas and practices are we offering our clients, ourselves, and our wider communities? What does it mean to have an inspired relationship with Earth’s crises and these vast opportunities for intersectional change? Please check out recent additions to this Hot Topic for the New Decade.
A small group is currently planning our next Narrative Camp in February or March 2025. We are currently exploring options in southern California and The Valle de Guadalupe (Guadalupe Valley) in Baja Mexico. Contact us with suggestions, questions, or if you would like to volunteer to help.
The Collaborative Narrative Network Training Calendar includes recent entries for upcoming trainings by our partners The Narrative Therapy Initiative, Evanston Family Therapy, and Narrative Practices India.
Three self-paced online courses now in active production build on our deep respect for narrative therapy’s philosophical foundations, key concepts and interviewing practices. We also build on the evolution of Narrative Therapy, creating spaces for an interplay with other treasured approaches to working with people experiencing serious difficulties in their lives and relationships.
Em-BODY-ing Conversations – the second course in our Narrative Therapy, Trauma & the Affective Turn series – is now in active development, and will explore Lynne Rosen’s approach to bridging cherished narrative ideas and practices with understandings of EMDR and somatic therapies.
