Compass Seminars – Systems & Stories (Brisbane)

A two-day in person workshop around a narrative therapy approach to meaning making and change

Compass Seminars presents Systems & Stories (Brisbane)

This two-day workshop will provide participants with key skills in Narrative Practice including practical clinical skills that can be used immediately with individuals and families (children, adolescents, adults and older persons).  Participants will consider the relevance of Narrative Practice in their work setting, and applications relating to the context of trauma, relationships, and grief and loss.  Participants will consider how to “tread lightly” but effectively with Narrative Practice.

In this course participants will develop an understanding of:

  • What Narrative Therapy is
  • The Systemic Family Therapy context of Narrative Therapy
  • Assumptions underpinning Narrative Practice
  • The importance of stories in our own lives and the lives of those we work with
  • Therapist positioning in Narrative Therapy
