The Art of Therapeutic Story Telling with Jennie Miller

14 November 2020 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


We are accustomed to hearing our client’s story and inviting 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, to raising questions about a situation that the listener may be stuck with, through to a deeper understanding of the self. It is a gentle yet powerful intervention. This workshop will demonstrate how to tell stories and look at the ancient rules of dos and don’ts around being a storyteller.

This will be a day built on the experience of listening to stories and looking at the impacts in smaller groups, tips on how to tell stories and having a go at being the storyteller in smaller groups. There will be shared resources of stories and group discussions. The workshop is aimed for all those who are interested in story telling from established practitioners to students. As well as other professions such as teachers and coaches. Training takes place on Zoom and starts at 10.00am and finishes at 5.00pm.
