Congratulations and farewell (for now!)


Congratulations! You have made it to the end of this Aunty Barbara Wingard Aboriginal narrative practice online course!  We hope you have enjoyed it.

If you would like a certificate, you can complete the certification module.

Whether you complete the certification module or not, we’d like to celebrate you joining this course! So … we thought we’d share below the video of the valedictory speech given by Anthony Newcastle, Vanessa Davis, Justin Butler and Kylie Dowse when they graduated from the Master of Narrative Therapy and Community Work!

    Narrative Practice through both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander eyes… thank you so much for everyone sharing their stories. I am grateful to have been given this opportunity to engage with this Online-Practice….now to step outside my comfort zone.

    Thank you for this. The course id very informative and the material provided is very useful.


    This has honestly been the most engaging and interesting course I have completed in my work. The narrative therapy practice makes so much sense and is a really positive way of supporting people and I’m therefore very keen to start utilising it more in my work. Thanks!

    Thank you for this great opportunity to learn more about indigenous cultures and narrative therapy. While I am still a couple of years away from completing my counselling degree, I feel I have gained some helpful knowledge during this course. I like how there are multiple ways of telling your stories including, through yarns, artistically through the tree of knowledge or maps, song writing, letter writing or imaginative conversations such as a conversation with someone who is no longer here with us anymore.
    As a non indigenous person living in a community with a large number of indigenous people, I hope when I have finished my degree and start practicing, I am able to help the indigenous community with some cultural understanding, show respect and use narrative therapy to help improve their life.


    I routinely rewatch these videos and read these stories because it refreshes me for the fight that needs to be fought and fills me with hope. Thank you so much for providing these resources.


    Thank you again Aunty Barbara for making this course possible and for it’s validity as evidence based practice. To be able to articulate traditional cultural practices from our Ancestors and finding ways to work together in finding ways to practice these, such as narrative in our modern shared world, is amazing. Thanks to everyone involved in the creation of this course and to all students who have contributed. As I believe we are all teachers and learners together. I can see me utilizing and improving my work when working with mob in the present and future. Thank you! x

    Yamoan (Hello in Gamilaraay) Aunty Barb and all the other contributors to this course. It has been amazing for me and I cannot wait to get out there & practice these ideas. I am grateful of your commitment and now I am ready to carry this to my local community and to my mob. Thank you.


      Yaama Natalie 🙂
