“Stories Work! Using Stories for Helping, Community Outreach, and Advocacy”

The use of stories has always been a foundational practice in healing and advocacy conversations. Now, with mental health services expanding beyond clinical services and including recovery, housing, employment and other community based activities, it is necessary to re-evaluate how professionals, advocates, and the people they serve can use stories in additional ways. This training is designed for professionals, advocates, and peers who are interested in expanding their storytelling skills and using stories in new ways as they serve others.

Lunch will be provided.

6 CEUs will be provided.
