What’s my story? The reconstructive power of narrative therapy w/ Mauricio Yabar, MSW, M.Ed.

October 25 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm


Our stories are powerful. They make sense of our life experiences and identities. Thus, it matters who is doing the authoring and what gets included, highlighted, and left out. In this skills-based institute, participants will immerse themselves in the radically respectful approach of narrative therapy that allows people to uncover and embrace new stories of self. Participants will learn key processes and techniques to support clients in deconstructing messages and symptoms they may have internalized as truths and to engage in meaning making. Mauricio Yabar will explain and model the key processes and techniques of narrative therapy that attends to language, discourse, and social context. Participants will also engage in experiential practices to explore our own “untold” stories, emotionally enter and reauthor stories, or bring new meaning to stories we carry.
