Day 4: Re-inventing Narrative Practice, Training and Consultation

 

(Part 1)

 

(6.5 CEUs)

Register for Day 4 Here
Visionary Registration (register before February 1st): $145
Early Registration (Register between February 1st and February 28th): $165
Regular Registration (Register on or after March 1st): $185

Date: Thursday, May 7th, 2015
Time: 9:00am-4:30 pm
Place: Minnesota Church Center, 122 Franklin Ave W. Minneapolis, MN 55404
Presenter: David Epston, CQSW

Day 4 Description:

Narrative ideas and practice have historically been based on post structural philosophy, critical theory and literary theory. This workshop moves narrative practice towards the literature of performance studies and portraiture, which becomes a transformative vehicle that transports all involved to a greater distance than ever imagined.

Day 1 will focus on the history of the 'story' in narrative therapy practice and concern itself with 'what is a good story?' and 'what story tells a better story?' and 'why?' David will introduce 'moral character' as the defining concept of a narrative therapy alongside the thinking of the narrative phenomenological anthropologist, Cheryl Mattingly and “how people engage in ethical reflection and deliberation in their everyday engagements and relationships" by way of what she refers to as "first person virtue ethics". There will be plenty of opportunities to try out what she refers to as 'emergent narratives' and learn how 'to listen for a story' rather than merely 'listening to a story'.

Videos, live interviews. and reflections by those involved with these new practices will provide the pedagogy of the Act 1 and Act 2 experience that are said to be worth "two semester of graduate training in four hours".

 


 

Day 5: Re-inventing Narrative Practice, Training and Consultation

 

(Part 2)

 

(6.5 CEUs)

Register for Day 5 Here
Visionary Registration (register before February 1st): $145

Regular Registration (Register on or after March 1st): $185

Date: Thursday, May 7th, 2015
Time: 9:00am-4:30 pm
Place: Minnesota Church Center, 122 Franklin Ave W. Minneapolis, MN 55404
Presenters: David Epston. CQSW (Co-founder of Narrative Therapy, The Family Center, Auckland. New Zealand), with Tom Stone Carlson, PhD, LMFT (Director of the social justice and narrative based graduate Couple and Family Therapy Program, at NDSU. Fargo, ND; Co-director of The Stone Center for Relational Accountability). Amanda R. Haire. MS. LMFT (Co-director of The Stone Center for Relational Accountability, adjunct faculty at the CFT Graduate Program at NDSU), and Emily Corturillo and Ana Huerta-Lopez, (graduate students of the CFT program at NDSU).

Day 5 Description:

Narrative ideas and practice have historically been based on post structural philosophy, critical theory and literary theory. This workshop moves narrative practice towards the literature of performance studies and portraiture, which becomes a transformative vehicle that transports all involved to a greater distance than ever imagined.

David will be joined in Day 2 by Tom Carlson and Amanda Haire from North Dakota State University and some of their students who have been in a partnership with David, their students and their students' clients to evolve 'insider witnessing practices' in to what we are referring to as an 'engaged classroom'. Their preliminary results and those of Shawn Patrick at Texas State University have been well beyond the wildest dreams of all concerned. The project is now preparing to expand to private agencies with interns eg. Kenwood Center in Minneapolis and a public agency, East Tamaki Healthcare Programme in Auckland, New Zealand to experiment with 'engaged services'. For those of you who attended last year, this will attempt to show you what has happened since then and nothing will be repeated. Due to the novelty of these practices, Tom, Amanda and David will try to 'show' more than 'tell' as we consider that seeing is believing and telling may very well be unconvincing.

Videos, live interviews. and reflections by those involved with these new practices will provide the pedagogy of the Act 1 and Act 2 experience that are said to be worth "two semester of graduate training in four hours".
