Series Description:

  1.  

    Storytelling is the warp and weft of the tapestries of life, and the unfolding of  the collective narration of a people. It is the connective tissue in relationships with self and others. In this training participants will learn the power and benefit of storytelling as a radical presentation of self in one’s own narrative, with direct applicability to our work with traumatised youth and families. Participants will begin to appreciate that everyone has an individual, familial and socio-historic story, and when shared, their worldviews and associated behavioural choices begin to make perfect sense. Participants will engage in a series of writing and expressive arts sharing activities
