Training

The principles of Narratology can be brought into many disciplines, both therapeutic and non-therapeutic, and have a place in every helping, guiding, or service-related profession. It is most commonly adopted by mental health practitioners and educators, however skills in Narratology are also ideal for medical professionals, managers, parents, and anyone who leads or works with others. Training is also available for those who wish to learn Narrative Coaching, and bring it into their own practice. The length and format of trainings can be customized, but the two most common paths towards getting trained are 1) to join a group of "helpers" or "self-helpers," or 2) to do 1-8 Individual Narrative Coaching training sessions to learn techniques in a private setting.  Either option can be followed up with individual or group case study for "helpers."

THEORY OF NARRATOLOGY: FINDING OUR STORIES

What is a Coherent Narrative? Can We Access or Create One?
Introduces participants to the topic of Narratology. It also sheds light on the impact of fractured narratives, and the ways these false, forgotten, or interrupted stories can lead us to feeling stuck, unfulfilled, or without meaning. This module will also begin to address how our narratives can be revised, allowing us to make desirable shifts in our lives.

Technique 2.png

"TECHNIQUE" trainings allow for deeper work. You will become acquainted with the specific techniques and structure that I have developed for drawing out narrative, helping clients to reframe it, and then guiding a process of reintegration. These techniques can be learned through experiential workshops or in your own private narrative coaching sessions.

WRITTEN MEDITATIONS: WE WRITE TO DISCOVER WHAT WE KNOW


Science of the Write Brain 
Focuses specifically on how writing can advance the discovery and revision of coherent narratives by accessing material in the memory stores of the left brain and languaging it though the storytelling engine in the right brain, thus remembering and reconsidering things that have been forgotten or frozen. Participants will respond to prompts during the module as a way of experiencing and benefiting from the power of the technique.
