Lifestage, Inc, SW CPE is recognized by the New York State Education Department's Board for Social Work as an approved provider of continuing education for licensed social workers #0270. This workshop provides 4 hours of Continuing Education.

This workshop will explore the art of developing a true experience into a compelling story that can be used in a professional presentation or classroom. We will look at improvisation techniques that strengthen creative confidence, demonstrate the ways that story engages the brain and build a story piece by piece. Participants will learn how to maximize a story's potential to "land" on the listener and can use the workshop to explore different approaches to the material. We will examine the ways storytelling is being used in health care, mental health and health education. Studies show that stories told artfully, that take listeners on an emotional journey have the potential to shape behavior and influence consciousness. We will use specific techniques for shaping a story, story structure, choice of details, use of imagery and metaphor.

We will look at stories that can be applied in professional settings to:

Maximize the impact of our message when we speak to the communities we serve, communicate important information about our work to peers in presentations, make pitches for projects or perform in public settings.

Focus the attention of a community, organization or client group on important issues, information, research or projects of which we are a part.

Can be used as a frame for sharing important facts, date or information.

Are inspiration and cultivate hope;
