This training will build on the Narrative Practices 1 training by introducing more of the assumptions and specific practices related to the model. Participants will learn about the notion of intentional understandings in contrast to an understanding that locates ‘strengths’ and ‘weaknesses’ internally. Participants will learn about and practice the skill of identifying alternative stories about people that are obscured by dominant problem stories. The re-authoring map of Narrative Practice will be presented to the group with time to practice using this tool.  The practice of writing ‘therapeutic documents’ following conversations with clients will be explained and several examples will be discussed.
