Narrative Therapy

Our stories influence our understandings of who we are . We need to re-author our stories to find ourselves afresh. This involves externalising, re-membering and outsider witness strategies.

Introduction to Narrative Therapy - 25-27 March 2020 (RUN 1)

About Your Speaker

Mr. Mohammed Fareez is the Senior Assistant Director of the Ang Mo Kio Family Service Centre and Graduate of the Masters in Narrative Therapy and Community Work program in collaboration between Dulwich Centre and The University of Melbourne, Australia.

What Is Narrative Therapy?

Based on the work of Michael White and David Epston, Narrative Therapy involves ways of understanding the stories of people’s lives and the ways of re-authoring their stories collaboratively between the therapist and the people whose lives are being discussed.

Sessions Key Concepts

• Externalization of the Problem: Where Person is Not the Problem, the Problem is the Problem • Re-authoring Identity • Working with Maps of Narrative Practices:  Landscape of Action & Landscape of Identity • Re-membering: Developing the Idea that Identity is Shaped by Social Connections and the ‘Club of Life’ • Use of Case Studies and Other Practical Examples • Outsider Witnesses • Definitional Ceremonies • Personal Agency • Gender Issues • Addressing Trauma with Narrative Therapy • Absent and Implicit: Enquiring Into Stories of Self Beyond the Problem Saturated Story
