About this Workshop
We hear our client’s story and invite them, sometimes, to describe their life using metaphor or favourite childhood stories.
In this workshop we look at how the therapist can become the storyteller, using tales both old and new.
Story telling has been used for millennia in understanding a situation from an alternate viewpoint. Stories are used to raise questions about situations that the listener may be stuck with, through to a deeper understanding of the self. Moreover, it is a gentle yet powerful intervention. This workshop will demonstrate how to tell stories. We will be exploring the ancient rules of dos and don’ts around being a storyteller.
Become the Storyteller
This will be a day built on the experience of listening to stories and looking at the impacts in smaller groups. We will give you tips on how to tell stories. In addition, you will have a go at being the storyteller in smaller groups. We will be sharing resources of stories and group discussions.
Does storytelling intrigue and fascinate you? Are you an experienced practitioner or new to this idea? This workshop is for everyone interested in exploring story telling. In addition, it is also great for other professions – such as teachers and coaches – who would like to explore storytelling.
Training takes place on Zoom and starts at 10.00am and finishes at 5.00pm. Tickets cost £70 for the day.
