Join us for a day that includes sharing the gift of your story activities and improv games that promote confidence and community as we engage in playful and informative action methods that lead to bringing forward and developing brave personal narratives.
Currently one word is dominating the news and our personal conversations – unprecedented. Often accompanying headlines with “unprecedented” are pronouncements that times are unparalleled, unimaginable, unnerving, and unheard of. These are all synonyms for encounters with the unknown. It’s true, we are living through uncertain times, but that doesn’t mean that we are completely unprepared.
In this online workshop participants will learn how the tools found in therapeutic improvisation and storytelling can assist in navigating the unknown – addressing the unclear future, from exploring present fears to discovering the seeds of resiliency as each person connects with their own story and each other.
Theoretical Underpinnings of Navigating the Unknown:
Three main theories that influence the tone, content, and outcomes of this workshop are Daniel Siegel’s “Whole Brain”, Virginia’s Satir’s use of Experiential Therapy, and Michael White and David Epston’s Narrative Therapy.
You will receive the Zoom access link about 1 week prior to the workshop date.
