Training at Dulwich Centre

We have a range of workshops and training programs available including:

  • Level One and Level Two Intensives
  • Master of Narrative Therapy and Community Work
  • One Year Training Program in Narrative Therapy


  • Online courses
  • International events and training programs
  • External training delivered in your organisation, town or country

These trainings will be offered by Dulwich Centre Faculty members who work as both therapists and teachers and who trained and worked alongside Michael White over many years. Dulwich Centre has a training philosophy that ensures that those teaching narrative therapy are also maintaining a therapy practice themselves. We have found that this leads to rich and rigorous training conversations. In 2023, we have Level One Intensives in February, September and November, as well as a Level One Intensive specifically for First Nations workers in Cairns, QLD. The Level Two Intensive is held in November each year.

Find more information about the workshops here.

This program is offered in collaboration with the University of Melbourne.

This Master program began in 2014 and has already featured participants from USA, Singapore, Canada, Australia, Spain, Hong Kong, Israel, Tanzania, Ireland, Belgium, Chile, South Africa, Denmark, Mexico, New Zealand and the UK! This year five Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participants are involved.

Applications are now open for the 2023 intake via the University of Melbourne.

This is an immersive year-long program. The 2023 program consists of a Level One and a Level Two Intensive (one in February and another in November). In between these two teaching blocks, participants will be engaged in a reading/writing program relating the ideas of narrative practice to their own contexts and staying connected with each other online.

In 2023, we’re pleased to announce that we will offer options for the teaching blocks of this program. You can choose to attend the first teaching block face-to-face in Adelaide OR online. The second teaching block will take place online.

If you would like to immerse yourself in narrative ideas next year, this One Year Program might be for you!

Registrations for 2023 are now open! More information and links to register here.

  • External training delivered in your organisation, town or country

If you and others in your workplace or local community are interested in learning more about narrative approaches, then it may be possible for us to arrange a training event in your location. This often saves considerable expense in relation to airfares and accommodation. Topics for these workshops include:

  • Introduction to narrative therapy (one day, two day, or five day events)
  • Introduction to narrative approaches to working with individuals, groups, and wider communities (two day, three day, or five day events)
  • Tree of Life: A narrative approach to working with vulnerable children
  • Responding to trauma: narrative approaches to working with individuals, groups, and communities

Or a custom-made topic depending on your area of interest and the availability of skilled trainers on that particular topic! If you are interested in an experienced trainer/practitioner in narrative approaches visiting your local community, please write to us. Because we have links with practitioners in every continent (except Antarctica), you never know what might be possible!
