Jill and Gene flyer Jan 2014

The workshop will be held, thanks to Bayside SF, at 450 Sutter suite 300. Saturday, Jan. 11th will be from 10 am to 6pm. Sunday, Jan. 12th will be from 9 am to 5 pm.

Jill Freedman and Gene Combs have been dedicated to teaching narrative therapy for more than two decades. They wrote Narrative Therapy: The Social Construction of Preferred Realities and Narrative Therapy with Couples…and a whole lot more! a collection of papers, essays and exercises. They offer year long (sometimes two year long) trainings (weekends- no need to be local) and intensive workshops.

Gene is a clinical associate professor of psychiatry at the Pritzker School of Medicine at the University of Chicago, where he is director of behavioral sciences in the NorthShore University HealthSystem Family Medicine residency program. Jill is the Director of Evanston Family Therapy Center. They have consulted to schools, social service agencies and businesses.


Because we are asking Jill and Gene to focus on couples therapy, the basics of narrative will not be covered. To benefit your training, prior training and experience with the narrative therapy approach is recommended.

Discount hotel might be announced. Check back for info.
