After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.
Stories provide powerful metaphors to inspire, teach and guide. Stories can help to give hope, to build resilience, to develop positive values and to effect behaviour change.
In this introductory two day workshop, examples, ideas and techniques for writing healing stories will be shared and the therapeutic use of metaphor explored. With the support of a story-making framework, you will be guided in metaphor mapping and create your own stories to address a range of challenging behaviours and situations.
Through case study illustrations and practical exercises, this workshop will introduce you to a range of therapeutic stories for children and adults in counselling and group work.
Psychologists, social workers, counsellors, teachers, play therapists, psychotherapists, pastoral workers, other allied health professionals and students who are interested in incorporating elements of storytelling into their work. Provisional psychologists can attend at student rates.
