Hear from an experienced social worker sharing stories that highlight the value of narrative therapy as a strengths-based approach, bringing healing to those nearing the end of their lives.

Narrative therapy seeks to be a respectful, non-blaming approach to counselling and community work, which centres people as the experts in their own lives. It views problems as separate from people and assumes people have many skills, competencies, beliefs, values, commitments and abilities that will assist them to reduce the influence of problems in their lives.

Lisa will present 3 stories of practice utilising narrative approaches in palliative care work.

This session is the next in a series of events planned and hosted by the SCA West team to educate and nourish spiritual care professionals in WA and across the country. Further developing their theme for the year, Head and Heart in Practice, this event is intended as a means of “bringing together learning, knowledge and heart-centred experience to shape our reflective spiritual practice”.
