The Power of Personal Narratives
If you work with kids, you probably work on narrative writing. But did you know that working on narratives—in both oral and written language has profound effects from helping students to work through emotional issues and trauma, to improving health outcomes from decreased chance of drug abuse and crime to higher chances of fighting cancer and healing from heart attacks, to increasing executive functions and problem solving, all the way through to creating a stronger, more coherent and efficacious sense of self. Join board certified educational therapist Diana Kennedy to explore the many facets and ways to harness the Power of Personal Narrative.
