Event description

Narrative mediation is a sophisticated conflict resolution and communication process rooted in the principles of narrative practices. Specifically tailored for organisations, school, and group settings, this approach is instrumental in addressing conflicts by respectfully exploring the narratives people hold about themselves and others. The overarching work in narrative mediation is to foster a more constructive and collaborative understanding of complex issues.

Participants will explore practice-based narrative skills,  designed for effective conflict resolution via building:

  1. Respectful Curiosity
  2. Building an Externalising Conversation
  3. Relative Influence Questioning
  4. Deconstructing Discourses
  5. Curiosity about Events Outside the Conflict Story
  6. Naming and Historicising Alternative Story
  7. Developing a Preferred Story
  8. Re-authoring the Relationship Story
  9. Constructing Agreements

Date: Friday 21 June 2024

Time 10am - 3 pm

Venue: Northpsych, Lindfield (in person) or online via zoom

Fee: $250
