Safe Storytelling – Online

The workshop informs learners about purposeful, meaningful and sustainable storytelling, which they can use in interactions that require them to share their lived experience e.g. with clients. The participants will be given the chance to craft their own purposeful story, and be equipped with the knowledge to understand safe disclosure.  This workshop can support learning for those who directly use storytelling in their role and heightening managers/supervisors understanding of the background and basic tenets of safe storytelling.
