Life is about collecting stories - what do yours say?

A one-day workshop exploring the use of ideas from Narrative Therapy to add a new richness to your practice of Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT)

Narrative therapy

This form of therapy, developed in the 1970s, mainly by Michael White and David Epston, seeks to help people identify their values, skills and knowledge in order to overcome their problems.  The therapist encourages the client to explore the history of these qualities, and to co-author a new narrative which often challenges the dominant cultural view.

"Narrative therapy seeks to be a respectful, non-blaming approach to counselling and community work, which centres people as the experts in their own lives. It views problems as separate from people and assumes people have many skills, competencies, beliefs, values, commitments and abilities that will assist them to reduce the influence of problems in their lives."

From "What is Narrative Therapy? An easy-to-read introduction by Alice Morgan.

After this workshop you will:

  • Understand the theoretical ideas behind Narrative Therapy.
  • Know how to use some techniques from Narrative Therapy, such as language use, externalisation, deconstruction and re-authoring,  
  • Know how you can integrate Narrative Therapy in a CAT framework.
  • Have heard clinical examples where Narrative Therapy and CAT have been combined.
  • Have experienced the power of Narrative Therapy for yourself through using the Tree of Life.

Who is the workshop for?

CAT therapists who are interested in adding some more creative ways of working to their repertoire.  Attendees can expect an interactive session, with opportunities to try-out new lines of questioning in a safe environment, experiment with new tools, and build an even stronger skillset.

Facilitator:

Emma Offord is a clinical psychologist, working with the Addenbrooke’s Hospital liaison psychiatry team, and also in private practice.  She is an experienced Narrative therapist.  Having recently done some training in Cognitive Analytic Therapy, Emma is starting to explore how to integrate CAT with Narrative Therapy.
