Narrative Therapy

Narrative Therapy examines:

  • The idea that our realities are socially constructed
  • Our experiences are shaped by language and structure of language
  • Reality lends itself to multiple interpretations
  • There are no absolute truths in the narrative not subject to interpretation
  • The individual’s resourcefulness is the catalyst for change
  • There is a dominant narrative running through one’s life
  • When the dominant narrative becomes destructive to ones’ life and health it needs to be examined and deconstructed
  • Exceptions to the narrative are examined and used to challenge the dominant narrative in order to alter one’s approach to how their world, activities, motivations, and outcomes are realized, thus creating a new narrative leading to greater health and wellness
