This workshop is for parents, grandparents, lovers of a great tale, writers, early childhood workers, songwriters... well people :-) who want to develop or fine tune their inherent storytelling skills.

Storytelling and Language skills

Classroom teachers and community workers.
This workshop overviews simple methods of sourcing stories, adding a variety of languages into those stories, participation hints and overviews the way children and adults learn about the world through story.

School groups

Storied Conversations
This workshop explores the ways in which we can listen, hear and elicit stories. We cover presentation of ourselves as a story, ways in which we offer alternate stories and the value of the witness. For decades I have worked with youth-at-risk, people who have experienced trauma and in mental health centres, learn the skills to facilitate storied conversations.

Life Story
Our lives can be seen as a series of stories. Together we can develop past events/memories into good tales for the telling. We will create a supportive development and telling environment. We will explore appropriate metaphors and cultural tales to embed our story.

Storytelling, Drama and Robotics
For 5 years I have been coaching youth and teens in robotics clubs to communicate, form a team based on joint core values, develop strategy and design. Basically learn communication via the arts.
