Narrative Therapy Initiative 
Narrative Therapy Initiative 

Narrative Therapy in Practice
Friday, December 3 & Saturday, December 4, 2021; 10 am to 5 pm Eastern
Instructors: Suzanne Gazzolo, PhD, LCPC, and Matt Mooney, LICSW
Location: Online via Zoom
Maximum participants: 30

This skill-based, two-day training is for people wanting to learn how narrative therapy ideas are put into practice in therapeutic settings. In particular, we explore externalizing practices and skills in the context of deconstructing and re-authoring therapy conversations. Clinical examples and experiential exercises will help support participants’ learning. Participants can expect to learn how narrative practitioners work to help people separate their lives from problems and identify new steps they can take that fit with their hopes and values. After completing this course, you can further your skill development through NTI's Narrative Certificate Program, which begins each fall.

To enroll in this course, participants need to have completed NTI's "What Is Narrative Therapy?" workshop or an equivalent introductory training about the Narrative Worldview. If you are unsure if you are eligible for this course, email NTI to discuss your previous experience with narrative therapy.

You will be emailed instructions on how to access and log into the course. To ensure maximum participant engagement in the online format, this course is limited to 30 participants.
