I am so inspired and grateful to be a part of this 4-day journey of learning, reflecting, and experiencing. The mix of presentations, practice, small and large group discussions and demos has been so helpful. The narrative approaches presented both affirm the work I’m doing and provide so many new ideas, questions, and strategies. I so appreciate how anti-oppressive practice was woven throughout this training. This training is re-energizing me and will have a profound influence on my social work practice.

This was one of my favourite workshops; very informative and interesting.
A marvelous de-posing of pathology and a restoration of meaning-making as important to, if not central to, coping and growing in life and love.

The training has been such an enriching and rewarding experience. I have come away with so many practical tools that I can use in my practice of social work.
As a newcomer to Narrative Therapy and its practices, I really appreciate the group exercises and the opportunity to engage the material and address any questions on the spot. There was so much support and great instructors/teachers that made this a wonderful learning experience.
This course teaches us how to draw the stories from people in a non-judging way and how stories could be used to bring clients to a sense of awareness and affirmation.’

Angel has a gift of teaching that keeps people interested. My practice will never be the same. I am very thankful for this experience.

What a powerful introduction and re-connection with Narrative ideas. Experiential exercises and accounts from the field are presented at a pace conducive to solidifying theoretical concepts and practice skills. Participants are left with lasting connections to other narrative practitioners and blossoms of new ideas to take back to practice.

This NTC class has been an awesome experience. New ideas, practice applications in many areas of counseling can be seen. I highly recommend immersing oneself for several days of learning, being, and doing.
