This continuing education treat will begin with a performance of selected scenes from “The Danger of Hope” by playwright and actress Morgan Breon.
“The Danger of Hope” shows the joys, pains, and struggles of Ms. Morgan, a newly hired Behavior Specialist at a Detroit public high school. When hope begins to crack open her students’ hearts and minds, Ms. Morgan’s office might just be the most dangerous room in the entire school. Featuring Morgan Breon in a tour de force role as she portrays an array of characters in the public school setting including a behavior specialist, students, teachers and administrators.
Class 2 - 1:45 pm-4:45 pm EST (3 CE Credits)
The Power of Storytelling in Building Relationships with Clients will use creative exercises, partner activities and writing prompts to guide participants through discussion around two core elements in building relationships with clients: listening (LARA) and sharing (storytelling).
Have you ever taken a moment to pause and think about your process for storytelling? To reflect on your experiences of sharing and receiving stories? In mental health work, we are constantly engaging with others' stories. Many of us need access to others' stories in order to do our own work. But is there a more effective way to listen to others' stories? More than this, is there a way to experience telling our own stories more fully?
This workshop will reintroduce participants to the power of storytelling. Participants will be given the space to reflect on the process of sharing story, the process of effective listening and how strengthening these areas can be beneficial to their clients.
Are you ready to relearn the power of story?
