Our narratives matter; they define who we are. For this reason, stories are invaluable tools for counselors, therapists, and educators to use in virtually any clinical setting. Based on work with thousands of students, writers, veterans suffering from PTSD, and cancer patients at Mayo Clinic, this 3-hour online workshop will feature inspiring stories that demonstrate five effective ways that personal stories and writing can be used in clinical treatment to support healing and resilience. Participants will be able to identify three significant findings from recent neuroscience that explain how writing our positive stories can lead to creating healthier, happier, and more resilient identities. We will demonstrate how to use three or more writing/storytelling activities, and participants will learn interactively to apply these activities to enhance their work with clients or students of all ages and abilities. No previous experience with writing or storytelling is required.
