The Power of Storytelling in Building Relationships with Clients

The Power of Storytelling in Building Relationships with Clients will use creative exercises, partner activities and writing prompts to guide participants through discussion around two core elements in building relationships with clients: listening (LARA) and sharing (storytelling).

 

Have you ever taken a moment to pause and think about your process for storytelling? To reflect on your experiences of sharing and receiving stories? In mental health work, we are constantly engaging with others' stories. Many of us need access to others' stories in order to do our own work. But is there a more effective way to listen to others' stories? More than this, is there a way to experience telling our own stories more fully?

This workshop will reintroduce participants to the power of storytelling. Participants will be given the space to reflect on the process of sharing story, the process of effective listening and how strengthening these areas can be beneficial to their clients.

 

Are you ready to relearn the power of story?
