Take on intensive and rigorous training in advanced narrative practice. You will progress through five taught modules, submit written assignments, and finally complete the Practice Assessment module. On being awarded the Diploma you become an Associate Member of the Institute.
The Institute of Narrative Therapy was established in 2009 with the aim of supporting the teaching and development of Narrative Practice in the United Kingdom and beyond. The current Directors are Mark Hayward, Amanda Redstone and Hugh Fox.
The Institute offers training at Level 1 (five days) and Level 2 (five or six days), as well as the Diploma in Narrative Therapy which students complete over a number of years. All our training provides a rigorous and practical learning experience. Practitioners will be able to start using the ideas after completion of Level 1 training; their range of understanding and sophistication of practice will be increased by completion of Level 2 training, and completion of the Diploma will ensure that you have an advanced level of skill.
Institute staff are all highly experienced teachers and are committed to the dissemination of narrative ideas and practices. We seek to contribute to the development of the next generation of practitioners and teachers and are glad to support any projects that are consistent with narrative principles and ethics.
We also support the development of an evidence base to facilitate the practice of Narrative Therapy in agencies and institutions
The Diploma in Narrative Therapy automatically confers Associate Membership of the Institute on its holders.
Those who have undertaken other trainings of an equivalent standard, eg, the Dulwich Centre International Course, may apply for Associate Membership via an Accreditation of Prior Experience and Learning (APEL) route. Applications to be an Associate Member by the APEL route attract a one-off initial fee. For the current level of this fee contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
