Healing happens in relationships, and not in isolation. Therefore, an important part of trauma recovery is getting people out of isolation, where they can feel understood and validated for their worth and potential contribution to the world. In Narrative Therapy (NT) we do this through Outsider Witness practices
Join the SWEET Institute and Jodi Aman, expert Self-Care Health Professionals, and learn about:
- How to get your client out of isolation where recovery is impossible,
- How to use witnesses in therapy with written documents, letters, and guests, and
- The four questions in the re-telling map (AKA “Outsider Witness Map”) to exponentially expand treatment.
Here's what our attendees are saying about SWEET Webinars:
"Friendly, exceptionally knowledgeable and organized sharing of highly effective strategies and information that relate to current and pressing social and emotional issues."

After earning her master’s in social work at Columbia University in 1996, she received an Advanced Post-Graduate Certificate in Narrative Therapy in 2006, and joined the faculty at Dulwich Centre to teach Narrative Therapy in the U.S., Canada, China, Ireland, Mongolia, Australia, and Norway, focusing on couples, teens, trauma and anxiety recovery. Her popular YouTube channel, Practical Miracles, teaches people to understand themselves, evolve past fear, and finally release that internal self-critic. Having clawed her way out of her own emotional crisis, Jodi shares her story of stepping into her personal power, and that of many of her clients in her bestselling book You 1, Anxiety 0, Win your life back from fear and panic. Her anxiety workbook for teens will be released in July 2020.
There are a handful of states that the NASW does not cover because those states want to maintain their independent authority to approve, or not, providers and courses. New York is one of these states. BUT: In New York State, the Office of Professions controls the approval process instead of the NASW. We are an approved provider by the NY State Office of Professions.In other words:
- In the State of New York, SWEET Institute is approved by the Office of Professions under Dr. Sidor Psychiatric Services as a CEU provider for social workers (#SW-0471) and mental health counselors (#MHC-0127).
- Our live and self-study webinars are individually approved by the NASW National CE Approval Program in 46 additional states. SWEET courses are NOT approved by the NASW National CE Approval Program in: Michigan, New Jersey, and West Virginia.
