stockbridgeTips, Tools, and Stories: Highlights from 15 years of Healing Story Work

In this teleconference, we’ll do a virtual mini- healing story session. I facilitate these sessions regularly in residential drug treatment programs, homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters, and beyond. My primary focus in the groups is to foster resilience, self worth, courage, forgiveness, strength, perseverance and other positive qualities. This approach to healing story is applicable in many environments. I’ll describe some of my challenges and rewards. I’ll also have handouts available with outlines of tried and true healing story sessions.  My hope is that the teleconference will be inspirational and will empower you to look for opportunities to bring healing story to your own situations and environments.
