The Storytelling For the Recovery Workforce workshop is no longer accepting applications. We had a resounding response and the application process is now closed. Please check out our other events for additional opportunities.
Increase your efficacy as a Recovery Professional with the intentional, skilled use of your life experience! We use stories to validate our recoveree’s experiences, offer solutions, hope and motivation, and much more. The question is, HOW are our stories used to help others? How are they impacting the listener? And how about the teller? What’s the possibility of iatrogenic harm?
In this training, we’ll explore how culture impacts our personal art of storytelling. We’ll discover how stories are being received versus the impact that can ultimately benefit the listener, while also discussing how Recovery Values and Recovery Coach Roles can inform personal story sharing. Using this newfound clarity, we will have the opportunity to practice crafting short personal stories to support our professional roles.
This training is appropriate for anyone working with people with problematic substance use or mental health challenges where story sharing can be helpful within the role. It is not necessary to be in personal recovery from these challenges in order to use our lived experience to be an effective storyteller!
This workshop is for Peer Recovery Support workers (certified and not certified) providing support to those struggling with substance use challenges.
This workshop has a maximum capacity of 24 individuals. The first step in the process is an application to attend, which is linked below. You will be notified on Friday, 7/7/23 whether your application has been accepted and if it has, provided a link to register. Because of the limited seats, we ask that you are available for the full session before applying.
