Great format to the training. I think the bi-directional video made a much more engaging conversation. No one was at the training just to be there, and that was so nice to be a part of a group that was actually there to participate. This training is incredibly beneficial to people in rural areas like Durango, where there are very limited access to training like this!
Story Circles: a Strengths-Based Storytelling Tool to Promote Health and Wellness
This free recorded webinar is brought to you by the Rocky Mountain Tribal Epidemiology Center, the Rocky Mountain Public Health Training Center, and StoryCenter.
Many working with American Indian Nations and urban Indian populations may already be using talking circles. Learn how Story Circles can extend this tradition and provide another tool to encourage relationship building, understanding, and healing – especially among individuals dealing with issues of addiction or trauma.
Presenters share how Story Circles can provide a structured format for facilitating strengths-based personal storytelling as a tool for healing and recovery. This recorded webinar is ideal for those working to promote health and wellness among American Indian Nations and urban Indian populations.
At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
• Define strength-based storytelling
• Identify methods to transition from deficit-based storytelling
• Outline the facilitator’s role in a strengths-based Story Circle
• Identify ways to create a safe environment for Story Circles
