November 13 - 15th, 2020

The Lucie and Thornton Blackburn Conference Centre​**Please note: Faculty and Final Schedule May Change. Thanks.


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.


Need: Developing consistent, coherent and creative therapeutic questions that are consistently coherent with post-structural non-individualist ideas is (by far) the most difficult learning for most narrative therapists to achieve. Without this knowledge the craft narrative therapy is diluted, therapists often become lost and clients are thereby under served.

Mission: The Vancouver School for Narrative Therapy provides hands on supervision that guides the participant learner towards more robust understandings in the study, craft, practice, politic and development of therapeutic questions and – 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.

Who Should Attend: The course is designed for practicing narrative therapists and students who have a strong background in narrative therapy. If you have any questions about the 'fit' please contact our office at 604-688-7860.

"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."
