For the past twenty years we are known for combining pastoral and narrative therapy. That is the first course on the list that flows into our Practitioner Supervision programme and CPD programme options. Unlike other courses our advanced programme invites you to become part of our community to really get to understand and live the ideas of a narrative approach, irrespective of whether you use it as a parent, leader or manager, in ministry, a teacher, psychologist, coach or other profession. We are now accepting registration for 2021 for the advanced programme.
- Advanced Programme Pastoral Narrative Therapy (PNT), accredited by the University of Pretoria (Intake 2021 from September)
- A short course ‘Leaning into Narrative Therapy‘ (LINT), derived from the longer/ advanced programme. (Usually March/April and potentially September).
- Continued Professional Development (CPD) programmes (also open to the public subject to Ts&Cs. Among others it include working with children, the organisational context, medical and psychological discourses, working with stories and more.
- Professional / practitioner supervision (SUP) programme accredited by the University of Pretoria (Intake anytime but usually February/March and August).
- Coram Care (CCA) programmes are presented in the context of pastoral care and narrative counseling (or more widely including general narrative practitioners) and Alumni members. Some topics (see below) address wider public audiences.
- Affiliate programmes are offered through our network of affiliates and learning campuses across the country | These are not necessarily courses/events/workshops by Coram Deo (unless stated to be). They are presented from time to time by our affiliate counsellors and lecturers in their personal capacity or in partnership. Such programmes are generally not listed here. Although, we mention the next one taking place on 26 June and 1 July: Basic skills for dealing with trauma in children going back to school.
