International Share to Connect training in Italy

Date and time: May, 26, 27 and 28, 2023

Location: Liguria, Italy

Learn how to use storytelling in working with groups (in vulnerable positions) in the idyllic surroundings of the villages of Pugliola and Cerri, in Italian Liguria, on the hill behind Lerici and 15 kilometers east of La Spezia.

Storytelling has proven to be a highly effective method in working with, and empowering people in vulnerable positions, especially those who find themselves on the margins of society, due to mental and physical health problems, loneliness and poverty. Young people with mild mental health problems also benefit from working on and telling their stories.

In recent years, Storytelling Centre gained experience in this field in various projects and developed the Share-to-Connect method, which will also serve as a basis for the training offered hereby.

In the training we transfer our experience to people who want to use storytelling techniques themselves when working with people in vulnerable positions, for instance in programs aimed at increasing mental resilience, or in care.
