We will likely be posting definitions collected from our members and different sources. Interact with a ‘Story' - we have common talks with our volunteers about the Story Shop - explaining the process, from this we establish a doable story teller. Write a ‘Story' - we ask the volunteer to jot down their story in their very own words, with a begin, a center and an finish. We meet with this individual several occasions speaking through what they've written (and normally what they have not) and between us we develop a narrative ranging from the beginning of their mental health journey to where they're at present.
Time will be spent with this particular person making certain that they're joyful to go forward with their story, we undergo the signals we use when in a session in order people story that the story is relaxed and emotionally prepared. A call is then made if the Story wishes to carry on or take time out in another room the place they can talk by means of how they are feeling.
Assist a ‘Story' - earlier than a session all the stories and the member of staff meet up and talk for half an hour about how we're all feeling - this is the place the employees member will recognise if a story is feeling vulnerable/emotional. Preserve secure signals while Story Shop in session - all Tales have bottled water and a pen on their individual table.
