Life Story Work training

The overall goal of Life Story Work is to help people to piece together a complete narrative of their lives.

This includes their life history and information about relatives, friends, carers, places lived and key life events, as well as personal achievements.

Life Story Work may also help people to plan for their future as a result of understanding their past and the effect that it has had on them.

This course will cover:
  • What Life Story Work is and why it is so important
  • The three key outcomes of Life Story Work
  • Carer Contributions to Life Story Work
  • Restoring a sense of identity
  • When Life Story Work is not appropriate
