The One-day workshop will focus on DOUBE LISTENING narrative re-authoring practice.  It is a practice skill opening up spaces to explore territories that exist side-by-side to problematic experiences.

DOUBLE LISTENING is more than active listening.  According to David Pare (2013), double listening is“the practice of staying open to hopeful possibilities always on the other side of the struggle” and listening for words that may be “a hinge around which two stories can swing”.  Monk and Winslade (2013).

DOUBLE LISTENING is a particular way of listening with our eyes, our senses, our ears, our imagination and curiosity.

DOUBLE LISTENING practice skill training will be a step-by-step experiential teaching and leaning ways to listen, and what to listen for in the process of co-creating double storylines running parallel in client/people’s lives.

DOUBLE LISTENING practice skill may be applied in therapeutic conversations in clinical and non clinical settings.  The one-day workshop will have a focus on working with children, young people and families and effects of trauma.  

The training will include live interviews, guided practice exercises and opportunities for reflections and questions.

This training is designed and suitable for psychologists, social workers, youth workers, family therapists, chaplains, counsellors and occupational therapists who work with children, young people and families.
