Description

This course explores the importance of life story work for children separated from their family of origin. It can help them to make some sense of their past and their present in order to move into the future with confidence.

Life Story work involves gathering together facts about the child’s life in a creative way resulting in a reassuring record of who they are and where they come from. It is a key tool in promoting their sense of identity and self-worth.

Need more time?

We recognise that sometimes groups need more time for discussions and group work. This can mean that a two-hour session is just not long enough to explore the curriculum and engage in question and answer sessions. So we are you offering the opportunity to extend the session by an hour to allow your trainees the chance to explore the curriculum fully!
