Webinar Description

90-minute webinar

Gain a practical and playful introduction to Narrative Therapy in this LIVE 90 minute webinar. 

This first webinar in the three-part, Playful Narrative Therapy Series, introduces you to some of the foundations of Narrative Therapy, with a focus on working with children (although the principles are applicable to all ages). Narrative Therapists listen carefully to the client’s specific language, hopes and values as they share their stories. In this webinar you will see demonstrations of the narrative technique of externalising,  a case study presentation of an 8yr old boy who experienced trauma, as well as examples which can be used with older children and adults. You will also have an opportunity to practice skills in a safe, supportive and playful environment.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the webinar you will be able to:

1. Have a better understanding of the narrative approach and some of the unique engagement practices
2. Know how to discuss a client’s problems using externalising techniques
3. See the benefits of separating ‘the person’ from ‘the problem’ (we all need some social distancing from our problems)

Date and Time

Live webinar will be run live on Friday 21st August, 2020 from 11.30am - 1.00pm AEST (Sydney Time)

Participant Feedback

I have learnt to EXTERNALISE the problem - get the negative internal dialogue out and create a noun for it. Love that!! RH

 

I’ve so enjoyed this webinar & will be signing up for session two.  Thanks Kim for sharing your expertise :) KH

 

Thanks Kim, great introduction to Narrative Therapy and I love the use of metaphors and drawing in therapy for Children. DL

 

I enjoyed the chance to practice externalising different types of problems. Lots to think about with the clients I'm working with! LVV

 

I really enjoyed the real-life examples and being able to 'practice' it thinking about it from a child's perspective. RH

 

It’s been a great session and it’s given me a better understanding of how to have these conversations with my clients. JA

 

I work with children in foster care who often experience so much disempowerment. I like how these ideas give power back to the child over their own story. LM

 

Thank you Kim, you have a soft style which brings out the playfulness that I can see in the therapy. SB

 

Great way of reframing how I will work with my clients! Looking forward to learning more in the next series. SG

 

Thank you it was a great introduction and the exercises and example really increase confidence in applying it with clients. GM

 

I enjoyed the case presentation and can think of lots of ways to apply some of the concepts with my clients. MM

 

I found it useful to open the window to understanding the foundations of narrative therapy. I believe this could be useful for giving context for a clients "problem" and look forward to learning more. SW

 

Great presentation, very engaging. Looking forward to externalising the problems in a creative way with foster child and carers I work with. I think we could get some creative and meaningful discussion happening. Thank you. AH

 

I'm a caseworker working with children, young people, and families who have experienced developmental trauma. Narrative therapy will be very helpful in my Life Story Work with clients. RH

 

I am a Master's student and have not been clear on Narrative Therapy. This was an amazing webinar to clear up much of the confusion. I will be attending both part 2 and 3. AC

 

Found this very interesting and a great introduction to Narrative therapy. I am registered for the next two webinars and look forward to them. I appreciated the examples - it reinforced the learning :) AW

 

I loved the interactive, session and I am definitely going to do the 2nd workshop. I loved the soft and clear examples of NT - thank you. MG

 

Thank you so much for the clarification around key concepts. The term 'double listening' was new to me and I can't wait to keep exploring what that might mean for me in my practice. I really appreciated the opportunity for practical activities. MW

 

I love all the examples included today to show how a person can externalize the problem, especially those that involve art directives - it immediately creates some distance between the person and the problem! SN

 

I appreciated that there were lots of practical application examples and opportunities to practice. I also love Kim's enthusiasm. Thank you. CR

 

Thank you for an engaging webinar, a great introduction to narrative therapy using practical examples, really cemented the learning.  Thank you. TH
