LIFE STORY WORK
feedback from IFAs and local authorities
NSPCC LIFE STORY WORK PROJECTS
Loved the example on the last afternoon on the 2nd day of a Life Story, this was extremely helpful. The resources shared and reading lists are FANTASTIC, so helpful. I love that we have the power points too as these will be something we revisit as a team in staff meetings
Integrative Therapist working in schools
I particularly wanted to learn more about writing a therapeutic narrative and how to pitch the life story, which was covered. Already I am adapting my practice in response to my learning and feel more confident. It was helpful to have an example life story book and metaphorical story sent after the course to refer to.
I do like being able to attend in person, so missed that element, but Katie adapted the course to the best it could be. On the plus side I may not have attended due to the distance from my location. Also it was useful to be able to put comments/questions in the comments box as it sometimes is difficult to do this in face to face courses.

I liked Katie’s teaching style as it was very relaxed and she was down to earth. It was fun and everyday I laughed during the course! Also as we were a small group and Katie was able to check what areas we wanted covered in the course and did cover these. The course was very clear and logical in format and easy to see the process. I liked the combination of power point slides, group discussions, break out room activities, use of videos and showing of real life examples of life story work activities.

Really enjoyed seeing it all put together and understanding how much to include in the story - the different wording used and how positive it can be, but also keeping the truth in there for the child. Really helpful, thank you.

The training has been very helpful, Katie, thank you for sharing your passions with us.
