Master in Narrative Therapy and Community Work (in collaboration with University of Melbourne)
This Master program began in 2014 and has already featured participants from Singapore, Canada, Australia, Spain, Hong Kong, Israel, Tanzania, Ireland, Belgium, Chile, South Africa, Denmark, Mexico, New Zealand and the UK! This year seven Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participants are involved! If you are interested in this program, which is run in collaboration with one of Australia’s leading universities.

One Year Narrative Therapy Training Program (with optional certification module). Graduates receive recognition towards Masters Program. The 2016 program consists of two teaching blocks here in Adelaide (one in February and another in November). In between these two teaching blocks, participants are engaged in a reading/writing program relating the ideas of narrative practice to their own contexts and staying connected with each other online. In 2016, those who successfully complete an optional extra certification module will be eligible for recognition of prior learning for one subject of the Master’s program. If you would like to immerse yourself in narrative ideas next year, this One Year program might be for you! Click here for more information or write to us.
Dulwich Centre is now offering online training courses in narrative therapy!
We’re delighted to offer a free what is narrative practice? Introductory online course.
This course is a gateway to free papers, videos and extracts to enjoy at your own pace. Across 9 ‘lessons’ or ‘chapters’ we have brought together papers, videos, images, interviews and questions. This course is freely available to anyone, although we think it might be particularly relevant for those interested in counselling/ psychology/community work/social work. We hope it is relevant for those seeking a ‘refresher’ working with narrative ideas and those looking for new ways of working with people in their context. Included are materials that are relevant for those working in therapeutic and/or community work contexts. Wherever you come from we hope you will find something interesting here! If after completing this online course you would like a certificate of completion this is also possible by taking the ‘certification module’ which involves completing a quiz and short essay and posting a number of reflections on the course forums. This certification module costs AUD$77. But the course itself and all its resources are freely available to all! This course has been created by Dulwich Centre Foundation with the assistance of Community Benefit SA (Government of South Australia).
Two pratice-based courses featuring videos from the Michael White archive:
Every so often we host short workshops by visiting international teachers. These events for 2016 will be announced soon.
If you and others in your workplace or local community are interested in learning more about narrative approaches, then it may be possible for us to arrange a training event in your location. This often saves considerable expense in relation to airfares and accommodation. Topics for these workshops include:
Or a custom-made topic depending on your area of interest and the availability of skilled trainers on that particular topic!
Over the last ten years, Dulwich Centre has co-ordinated training workshops that have taken place in a wide range of countries. We have a network of experienced and highly-regarded practitioners/trainers who are available for teaching assignments across the globe. Sometimes it is possible for these trainers to visit a country on their way to another destination – this saving considerable expense. We are used to arranging low-cost but highly-professional training events in places from Mongolia, India, East Timor, South Korea, Hong Kong, Bangladesh, USA, Canada and many others …
If you are interested in an experienced trainer/practitioner in narrative approaches visiting your local community, please write to us. Because we have links with practitioners in every continent (except Antarctica), you never know what might be possible!
To learn more about Dulwich Centre’s philosophy to training, read the article ‘Developing training programs congruent with narrative ideas’ (an extract from the book A community of ideas by Cheryl White and David Denborough).
