We are proud to announce registration is now open for the Third International Narrative Therapy Symposium, to be hosted by the Kenwood Therapy Center in Minneapolis, MN, USA. The First International Narrative Therapy Symposium was held in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, not long after Michael White passed away. We gathered as a community to share our loss, but also to share the narrative ideas and practices that were informing our work. Since this first symposium, the Kenwood Center has continued to welcome community members from diverse fields of practice all over the world to join us in exploring the possibilities of Narrative Practice.

The symposium will be broken up into two parts: a General Symposium held Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and an Advanced Symposium held Thursday and Friday. Presenters from around the world will lead the General Symposium, while the Advanced Symposium will be led by David Epston, Narrative Therapy Co-founder.
