It is the purpose of this short course to introduce and apply the concepts of both Narrative Therapy (NT) and Solution Focus Brief Therapy (SFBT) simultaneously in a therapeutic setting. The use of imagery and symbolism take the “storied” nature of problems and link them to the tapestry of all stories that a client brings into therapy. The Miracle Question looks at the “preferred view” of the problem and differentiates the singular vista of the problem against the preferred view of the client that has the vistas of the tapestry. EARS is used to give the client control over the preferred view of the problem.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Use the concepts of stitching and color coding to identify the problem story from the client’s overall tapestry.
  2. Use the concept of tool kitting behavior, to describe the singular vista of the problem from the client’s tapestry of stories.
  3. Use the acronym of EARS to describe the tool kitting for success.
