Direct Practice:  Drawing experience from their tens of thousands of narrative therapy practice hours the International faculty engage participants in 3 days of up close practice learning through Live demonstration counter-story interviews designed to teach the creative art involved with therapeutic questions.

Ecology: Participants develop an understanding of the complex relational 'ecology' involved in the 'receiving context' narrative therapists accept client stories into that produce the narrative therapy questions we ask. 

Mission: The Vancouver School for Narrative Therapy provides hands on supervision to guide the participant learner towards more robust understandings in the study, craft, practice, politic , timing, direction and development of therapeutic questions as well as – the lost art of therapeutic letter writing.

Learning: The course is designed for participants to feel the exhilarating experience of asking therapeutic questions growing exponentially forward. Participant learning is highly interactive, transparent, humbling and exciting. The learning experience involves watching, struggling, inventing, creating and participating in the advanced learning groups development of narrative therapy question and therapeutic letter writing - in real time!

"The Developing Narrative Therapy Questions 3 day advanced training session was amazing. I truly did go through withdrawal when it was over, wishing I was still in the room with everyone witnessing therapeutic conversations, constructing questions, discussing those questions and writing therapeutic letters.


I found the course so intellectually stimulating and a joy to spend time with like-minded folks engaged in discussion and thought about how to engage people with respect and hope. The energy and commitment of the faculty was inspiring and affirming."
