Welcome to sexualities, genders and narrative practice — a narrative therapy and queer space AND a free online course!
This course will give you access to a rich collection of free papers, videos and extracts to enjoy at your own pace across 7 ‘chapters’ or ‘lessons’. Hopefully you’ll find a good mix of stories, ideas, insider knowledges and practice examples.
We recommend that you have completed the What is Narrative Practice Course or have foundational Narrative Practice knowledge or experience before embarking on this course, as we will be referring to narrative practice ideas without describing them in great detail.
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 or those already using Narrative Practices in therapy and community work contexts. You do not need to have any experience working with people who identify as LGBTQ*. We hope that this course will be just as valuable for those who have extensive practice or lived experience of sexual and gender diversity as it is for those knowingly stepping into these realms for the first time. Wherever you come from we hope you will find something interesting here.
By no means will this course answer all your questions – rather we hope it inspires more!
Along the way, your host will be Zan Maeder, a narrative practitioner living and working on Kaurna land in South Australia, who completed their Master of Narrative Therapy and Community Work in 2019.
This course has been created by Dulwich Centre Foundation.
We hope you find it helpful!
