Instructor: Stephen R. Gaddis, PhD

This is a 10 week online course that will run from Monday, January 13- Monday, March 23, 2020.

Course will consist of 10 weekly online modules & two live web conferences:

  • Monday, January 27, 2020 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm EST
  • Monday, March 23, 2020 from 6:00 ‒ 9:00 pm EST

In this 10-week introductory online course, students will be introduced to the Narrative Worldview, including its philosophical assumptions and ethics. Students will learn about the de-centered and influential stance of the narrative practitioner, de-construct their conversation skills, learn how to identify and separate themselves from problems, and re-author their conversation skills, to help them identify and grow stories that support their values and preferred next steps in life.

Throughout the course students will be invited to bring forth stories from their own lives. This experiential-learning approach will aid students in developing an experience-near understanding of these ways of working, which will allow them to form a strong sense of whether they want to relate to people seeking their help in similar ways. While personal stories are invited to be shared, participants are never expected to share anything they prefer to keep private.

This online course will cover an introduction to the following topics:
1. Narrative Worldview, including its philosophical assumptions and ethics;
2. De-Centered and Influential Stance of the Narrative Practitioner;
3. De-Constructing Conversation Skills, which helps people identify and separate themselves from problems;
4. Re-Authoring Conversation Skills, which help people identify and grow stories that support their values and preferred next steps in life.
