On November 30th and December 1st, The Counselling Group and St. Paul’s University are co-hosting a workshop designed for psychologists, social workers, counsellors, and psychotherapists who provide counselling to couples and/or individuals with relationship challenges.
The topic, Listening, Witnessing and Intimate Relationships: Using Narrative Therapy in Working with Couples, presented by Jill Freedman, will focus on how relationships are shaped by our stories and how narrative therapy can offer members of a relationship the opportunity to really hear their partners. The workshop will be a skill-building workshop with case examples, video vignettes, and the opportunity for participants to engage with the ideas.
