Visual Reflection Teamwork: Art in a Narrative Therapy Context

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 715

Reflecting Teams and Outsider Witnessing Practices are two techniques used in Narrative Therapy to share important developments in a person’s life with other people. Historically, this is done through conversation. More recently, a development in this practice called Visual Reflection Teamwork incorporates visual and expressive arts into this process. Visual Reflection Teamwork can be useful in group therapy situations with teens, adults and/or elders, as well as in work with marginalized populations for whom empowerment and connection are uncommon experiences. This 90-minute workshop will teach participants the process of Outsider Witnessing and provide an opportunity for group members to participate in a Visual Reflection Team exercise. Familiarity with Narrative Therapy is not required, but an openness to learn via participation is encouraged.

Eligible for 1.5 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS
