Narrative work

Level: 3 | Modules: 1 | Hours: 10

Our identity as human beings is built upon the story we tell ourselves in making sense of our lives. Children who have lived through adversity in their early experience often cannot create a positive narrative. The story they tell themselves is harmful and negative. This module enables to understand the importance of narrative, and to develop skills in helping children and young people to create a strong and positive narrative for themselves.

Target audience: Foster carers | Adopters | School support staff
