We are Educational Narratives 

Kathie Adams, LMFT, and Stephen Burton, LMFT, decided to form Educational Narratives and apply for Continuing Education Provider Approval in 2017.  We wanted to create a high quality peer-to-peer educational organization, and to able to provide the highest possible standard of clinical education  for  our clinical colleagues working in mental health counseling, psychological therapy and social work. We were *approved by CAMFT as Continuing Education providers in October 2017, and aim to hold educational gatherings involving large numbers of people, but also small scale and intensive workshops on single topics.
