Training in narrative therapy and community work


For the last 30 years, Dulwich Centre has offered and co-ordinated a wide range of training options for practitioners who are wishing to develop their own skills in narrative practice. This narrative therapy training is skills-based and seeks to be accessible to practitioners from a range of disciplines, including social work, counselling, therapy, teaching, community work, nursing, medicine, psychology, psychiatry, psycho-social work, child-care, and so on.The training we offer includes one-day to week-long intensive workshops, online courses, International Summer Schools, and Spring Festivals,  year-long and Graduate Certificate programs, and a Master's in Narrative Therapy and Community Work in collaboration with the University of Melbourne. For people wanting an introduction to narrative therapy and community work, through to experienced people regularly using narrative ideas in practice, we have something to offer.

Training workshops delivered in your organisation, town, or country!


 

If you and others in your workplace or local community are interested in learning more about narrative approaches, then it may be possible for us to arrange a training event in your location. This often saves considerable expense in relation to airfares and accommodation. Topics for these workshops include:

 

  • Introduction to narrative therapy (one day, two day, or five day events)
  • Introduction to narrative approaches to working with individuals, groups, and wider communities (two day, three day, or five day events)
  • Tree of Life: A narrative approach to working with vulnerable children
  • Responding to trauma: narrative approaches to working with individuals, groups, and communities

Or a custom-made topic depending on your area of interest and the availability of skilled trainers on that particular topic!

 

Outside Australia:

Over the last ten years, Dulwich Centre has co-ordinated training workshops that have taken place in a wide range of countries. We have a network of experienced and highly-regarded practitioners/trainers who are available for teaching assignments across the globe. Sometimes it is possible for these trainers to visit a country on their way to another destination - this saving considerable expense. We are used to arranging low-cost but highly-professional training events in places from Mongolia, India, East Timor, South Korea, Hong Kong, Bangladesh, USA, Canada and many others ...
