About the Workshop
Learn storytelling methods and explore folktales which can help children (and adults) who are facing challenges. Enrich your therapeutic relationships and create opportunities to explore the effects of trauma and loss and create hope and healing. 6 CPD points credit and a certificate of attendance provided.
Learn how the ancient art of storytelling can help to understand and tolerate the stresses of life. Experience first-hand a method to enrich therapeutic relationships and create opportunities to explore the effects of trauma and loss. Stories contain hidden messages about possible ways of overcoming adversity. Stories use metaphors that can change the way we see ourselves and our world. They help to connect us to each other and help in finding meaning and hope. Storytelling encompasses both external therapeutic input and child-directed healing.
Rather than a day of power points, this workshop will be interactive and practical with ample demonstrations, group work and brief exercises to develop skills. You will have a chance to consider why storytelling works, how to introduce and incorporate storytelling in counselling, gain a resource of sample stories as well as ideas of where to look for suitable stories for therapy.
Included in the day will be discussion of your own experiences in hearing stories told and how particular stories address common experiences such as: fear of failure, loss of control, loss of happiness, facing evil, seeing that bad things happen, longing for peace and resolution, finding helpers along the way and discovering hope.
