AN INTRODUCTION TO LIFE STORY WORK

Date:  Tuesday 4 February, 2020

Venue:  Foxglove Offices/Gf2, 14 Links Place, Edinburgh EH6 7EZ

Life story work with children who are fostered or adopted is universally recognised as fundamental to helping them understand their history and form a positive sense of identity. This in turn can provide the protective factor of a coherent story as a foundation for better emotional health in adulthood. Despite its importance, in today‚Äôs pressurised working environment it has become increasingly difficult to give this area of work the priority it deserves. This workshop will help busy practitioners think about what life story work means in their work setting and how best to go about it. The emphasis will be on providing practical ideas and techniques for social work staff undertaking this work.  For further information and to download a booking form, please click here
