2 CEU for LMSWs, LCSWs, and LMHCs

Narrative therapy is based on the assumption that life is multi-storied. By understanding how those stories interact with identity, emotions, relationships, and actions, therapists can deconstruct what’s hurting their clients, and reconstruct a new way of being. Narrative therapy, based on the work of Michael White and David Epstein, gives therapist lines of inquiry that take clients from where they are to where they want to be.

In this 2-hour introductory course, practitioners will learn assumptions that make up narrative therapy and come away with the first line of of inquiry from the work of Michael White, Statement of Position Map 1 to transform the way they work.

Join the SWEET Institute and Jodi Aman, expert Self-Care Health Professionals, and learn about:

  1. The importance of “dual listening” in psychotherapy,
  2. How to uncover clients’ unique response despite the problem they are facing, and
  3. Take clients through 4 questions connecting them with their unique skills and abilities

Here's what our attendees are saying about SWEET Webinars:

"Very informative! A lot of information in a small time frame, but easy to understand and apply. It's difficult for me to travel and SWEET is less expensive. It is easy getting connected to the webinar, easy interaction with participants."
