Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

The paper builds upon the philosophies, theories and practices taught in COUNS 544 Discourse and Counselling Psychologies and COUNS 541 Counselling Skills. COUNS 543 further draws on and develops the narrative metaphor as it has been expounded in the literature on narrative therapy with children, young people, couples and families.

The following core concepts underpin the paper:

  • Discourses operate to structure people’s experience, offering positions from which to relate to each other.
  • People differ not only in the real conditions and opportunities of their lives but in the stories they draw from to make sense of these differences.
  • It is within language and discourse that we make meaning (or story our experience) through negotiation with others in our language community.

Counselling provides us with opportunities to participate in the creation of new or different meanings, alternative identity possibilities, or new forms of relationship.
