Storytelling for health care professionals

Led by renowned Welsh storyteller Daniel Morden and Jessica Wilson, RMN MSc, this accredited course provides specialist training for health and social care practitioners. 

Jessica and Daniel will draw on their extensive experience of storytelling in healthcare settings and through performance to introduce the principles of using traditional oral storytelling within a therapeutic relationship with service users/patients. Through experiential learning you will study how to find and shape a story, tell a story in performance, evaluate appropriate material for telling in relevant contexts, and how to reflect on the process and outcome. 

When: 14-15 September 2019 | Cost: £168
