Traumatic experiences and abuses of power can result in hopelessness and unworthiness in people and also in the workers who are witnessing these stories. Narrative Therapy, and the applications of Michael White’s maps of practice invite people to reclaim a sense of personal agency. These practices respectfully balance acknowledging and creating firm footing with which people and groups can speak about aspects of their trauma history whilst protecting against further distress. The process allows people to access subordinate stories of values, unacknowledged ways in which they have responded to hardship and the possibility of linking lives and reducing isolation.

This workshop will provide participants with skills to nurture people in separating from the effects of trauma on their identities and to foster stories of survival and hope. Insider knowledge will be shared around how people have resisted the effects of abuse and stood against injustice. Participants will have the opportunity to interactively learn skills that facilitate shared understanding, peer support and identifying significant people, who can stand
