Storytelling and resilience
[Note: This session builds upon the “Telling your Story” workshop on 20 April, which is a prerequisite.]
Following on from the first workshop, Kate and Tamsyn will share Frameworks research that helps us think about the stories we tell about stress.
They will describe the effect of stress on the developing child introducing the metaphor of the “resilience scale” which assists people to think about how resilience can be strengthened. Participants will be invited to apply the resilience scale to their own organisational stresses and stories.
This session is open to all staff from Pears grantee organisations.
