Addressing Anxiety: A Narrative Therapy Perspective

David Marsten, LCSW

Our presenter, David Marsten, will provide a framework for seeing anxiety, and other problems, as separate from the person, in alignment with the well-known narrative therapy saying “the person is not the problem. The problem is the problem.” This presentation will help clinicians understand how to treat a client’s anxiety from a relational perspective, explore and expose its motives and, having helped the client create some distance from it, to reassert themselves and reclaim the direction of their lives. 

At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify methods to externalize and personify anxiety 
  2. Discern how anxiety is fueled, in part, by cultural discourses 
  3. Contextualize and deconstruct anxiety

David Marsten, LCSW, is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and director of Miracle Mile Community Practice. He is on the faculty of
the Vancouver School for Narrative Therapy and teaches internationally for Dulwich Centre. He has coauthored several articles and the book, Narrative Therapy in Wonderland. For more information, visit www.mmcpla.org.
