From all angles: The importance of a well-rounded story - Story Shifters

Presenter(s): Dr. Barbara Ward

What would happen if  our current view of childhood trauma was shifted from one of  wounded-ness to one that is resilience and strength based? Using a social constructionist approach, this webinar will present the Story Shifter Framework that emerged from dissertation research. You will learn about:

·       8 resilience based Story Shifters that can make a difference for someone who has experienced trauma
·       how clinicians can use story shifters in counselling sessions
·       a tool to generate a healing conversation about trauma
·       the power of community members, helpers and mentors in shifting trauma stories, both on an individual or collective basis

  • It's the first time I've listened to a webinar and I think I'm hooked-interesting way to get in a quick learning. I'm so glad to find out today that I can listen to it again and share it. I will definitely be doing both, including sharing it with my childrens' principal in hopes she will share with the teachers.

  • I very much value these learning opportunities - it's great to be able to access some learning in the middle of the day and when education dollars are so scarce.
