Holland Narrative Study Abroad

Through Mercer’s Center for the Study of Narrative (CSN), Dr. Don Redmond and Dr. Sabrina Walthall lead a Narrative Therapy/Theory special topics course each summer. The study abroad component of the Narrative Theory course began in 2012 and occurs in Leiden, Holland, and Paris, France. The 10-day experience is designed to serve working adults of the College of Professional Advancement who may not be able to complete a longer study abroad trip. The special topics course abroad is ideal for individuals who have not traveled overseas and enables them to find inspiration and enhance their life story Mercer Counseling students may be eligible for CSN-sponsored travel scholarships to participate in the program.
