The narrative therapy consultation groups have been meeting with me since 1998. Colleagues enroll for a year’s supervision and consultation at the beginning of each year. We meet in groups of maximum 9 people for two hours nine times per year (excluding school holidays). We focus on literature that informs our narrative practice and also make space for the discussion of clinical work. We also practice skills and witness therapeutic interviews. The groups aim to create a supportive environment where colleagues can network and share their work and life experiences as it relates to their work.
Who can participate?
The narrative therapy consultation groups aim to give professionals in the fields of psychology, counselling, social work and pastoral care the opportunity for continued learning and skills development. A basic understanding of narrative practices is assumed. The one week intensive workshop offered once a year serves as an excellent background to the consultation group discussions and learning.
Meeting time of the groups:
Please note that participants are placed in two groups according to their preference and the composition of the groups. Both groups meet in person at Erinvale Estate, Somerset West.
Group A meets Wednesday morning between 09h00 and 11h00.
Group B meets Thursday mornings between 09h00 and 11h00.
