Welcome to Narrative Connections - an international network of narrative practitioners.
This network assists narrative therapists to:
seek out others who are interested in narrative ideas in their own area
build a sense of community of practice
find narrative supervision and teaching options in their own area, and
seek out other people to refer to in other parts of the country and/or world.
As you can see, we already have members from Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Russia, South Africa, Trinidad and Tobago, the UK, Italy, Lithuania, Romania, Sweden, Switzerland, Zambia, and the USA! And we are consistently hearing from therapists from other places who are making links through this website.
The rationale for Narrative Connections
Each day, we receive emails, phone calls, or faxes from narrative practitioners from around the world hoping to make connections with other people interested in narrative ideas, or are seeking information about a narrative therapist to whom they can refer someone. For many years, we did the best we could with such requests in an informal manner, but it seemed time to create a new process to link people together. This is what Narrative Connections is all about.
Many years ago, when the Dulwich Centre Newsletter first began, one of its most popular columns was the section in which therapists wrote a small description of themselves and their workplace and indicated whether they would be happy to receive visitors, referrals, etc. Through this column, therapists began to visit each other, make links in their own neighbourhoods and cities, and when travelling overseas could link up with people with a common interest. This proved enormously popular and contributed significantly to building a community of ideas.
With new technology, we have now created a similar system. We are inviting practitioners (you!) from different parts of the world to send to us a short description of your links to narrative ideas and your hopes in connecting with other practitioners, whether you are willing to meet with visitors, whether you can take referrals, and whether you offer teaching or supervision. You can also upload a photograph if you choose. We believe that over time a rich tapestry of practitioners will be created.
