On Friday, November 13th, The Institute at Maria Droste Counseling Center proudly presents Co-Constructing Caregiver Narratives Workshop as part of the Two Men Talking | Growing Up Different: Transforming Hearts Through Theater event. The Co-Constructing Caregiver Narratives workshop will be facilitated by the Two Men; Paul Browde, MD, & Murray Nossel, PhD, founders of Narativ, Inc. of New York and London. They will take a group of 100 participants through a day of learning exercises based on their own narrative method. This process provides a disciplined, highly empathic focus on what has happened in the lives of those who seek help, using direct dialogue and sensory details to co-construct stories that invite clients to connect, change and heal.

The Co-Constructing Caregiver Narratives workshop will take place in the Baerresen Ballroom of the Tivoli Student Center on the Auraria campus in downtown Denver. Registration begins at 8:30am and the workshop will conclude around 4:30pm. Delicious catered breakfast, coffee and tea will be provided. Below is a tentative schedule for the workshop.
