Presenter: David Epston, CQSW

Day 4 Description:

This 2-day long workshop takes up the matter of advanced training, supervision and consultation. It owes a great deal to a recent reading of Francine Prose: Reading Like a Writer (2006) where she asks herself the question: 'Can creative writing be taught? Because if what people mean is: Can a love of language be taught? Can a gift for storytelling be taught? Then the answer is no.

What confuses me is not the sensibleness of the question but the fact that it is being asked of a writer who has taught writing, off and on, for almost 20 years... She concludes that writers learned by reading the works of their predecessors.

The truth is that this sort of education, creative writing, involves a kind of “osmosis" (p. 3). I propose to demonstrate and have you try out what Kay Ingamells and I have been calling 'engaged supervision/consultation' and what a number of other leading narrative practitioners and teachers are calling 'engaged classrooms'. The experiences and results from our own and others engaged in these practices will be shared.

We will also explore training by way of various 'mapping(s)’ of exemplary tales, also known as case stories, as the means of finding your way to the 'heart' of narrative therapy practice. The purpose of all these pedagogies is to assist a practitioner to transition from 'maps' to 'mapping their own practice', from traveling by a kind of GPS to finding your own way in the strange territories of human experience, from being 'locked in' to a kind of App to being free to improvise on what you have learned so far.

Another theme of this workshop will be what is a 'good story' and how and why some stories trump others. Once again, this is of vital concern to a narrative practitioner but has almost been totally neglected in terms of either theory or practice.
