Staff and Faculty
Introducing the faculty of Brief Therapy Training Centres International. They have come together as colleagues and friends with their interest in post- modern therapies and practice-based research to teach throughout Canada, the United States and Internationally. Please click the names of each faculty member to view their personal page.
Jim has developed an interest in the study of storylines and has developed a conversational map for scaffolding people’s storylines throughout the therapeutic process. As well, he has been particularly excited to learn more about what creates a fertile context for those arresting moments that occur when people experience realizations and possibilities for movement forward in the therapeutic conversation. These ideas and more are all part of the Narrative Research Project underway in collaboration with University of Toronto.
Karen has a special interest in developing, practicing and teaching narrative therapy in brief settings such as the walk-in therapy clinic she has worked at over the past seven years. She has developed guidelines for therapeutic conversations that pull together postmodern ideas and narrative practices in ways that make it very possible to use them in any setting. Karen has a number of publications that focus on narrative practices in brief settings.
Scot has an interest and passion for brief narrative therapy and community practice. He presents a wide range of interest in the application of non-structuralist theory to various contexts including school settings, parents in distress, foster care/ group home settings, and single-session encounters.
