Share to Connect Academy - Introduction

Date and time: Saturday 15 April 2023, 11 a.m. till 5 p.m.

Location: Broedplaats de Vlugt, Burgemeester de Vlugtlaan 125, Amsterdam

Training in how storytelling can be used in work with groups of people in vulnerable positions, focusing on rediscovering their own story.

Storytelling has proven to be a highly effective method in working with and empowering people in vulnerable positions, especially those who have ended up on the margins of society due to mental and physical health problems, loneliness and poverty. In recent years, Storytelling Centre gained experience of this in several projects and developed into one of the European experts in this field. The Share-to-Connect method developed by the Centre also serves as the basis for this training.

In this training we transfer that experience to people who want to use storytelling techniques themselves in working with groups in vulnerable positions, for example in the Golden Men programme or in spiritual care. In one day, we introduce the basic foundation of storytelling and introduce different tools to empower people by working with them on their own story and letting them rediscover their own story.

The introductory training lasts one day from 11am to 5pm (including breaks) and takes place Saturday 15 April. It will be conducted by Arjen Barel.

Participation costs €75, excluding VAT, including lunch and theory book (Storytelling and the World).
