What is your area of interest? This conference will include thoughtful and hopeful presentations on all aspects of narrative practice. It will particularly feature innovative ways of working with challenging problems. Presentations are planned on the following topics: couple therapy, working with families, responding to abuse and trauma, working in the mental health, community work, Team of Life – use of football and narrative practice, violence, drugs and alcohol, working with organisations, therapy with children, and many more. If you have further ideas or topics you’d like to see covered, just write to us and we’ll see what we can do!
Our conferences are organised as ‘community events’ that seek to be congruent with the key principles of narrative practice. Some of our aims include:
- to provide high quality presentations on the latest thinking and application of narrative ideas and to do so in ways that enable people of differing experience to be both engaged and challenged
- to enable people of different cultures, countries, genders, ages, class backgrounds, physical abilities, and sexual identities to come together, enjoy each other’s company, and have a sense that the conference program and processes include their perspectives, hopes, and ideas
- to use the conference as a chance to acknowledge and come to terms with the history of the land on which it is held
- to create an atmosphere that is non-hierarchical, with no pronounced difference between presenters and participants
- to provide a forum for conversations that are expanding the field (not confirming it or simply reiterating what is already known).
Please join us and Brazilian, South American, and international colleagues from around the world. Presentations will be offered by practitioners from Brazil, Uganda, USA, UK, Israel, Australia, New Zealand, Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, Chile, France, Canada, Norway, Austria, and elsewhere.
