Description

Communication & Storytelling - Words and Pictures - Half-day Workshop

Storytelling has been used as a method of communication for thousands of years. From an early age, young children learn through stories and are familiar and comfortable with storytelling. Practitioners have been using words and pictures as a form of communication for many years, including its use in Person-Centred Planning and Signs of Safety approaches.

This half-day workshop provides practitioners with tried and tested techniques to communicate with children using words and pictures and to create short stories to convey key messages, and increase the child’s understanding.

Aim:

To enable practitioners to communicate confidently with young children using words and pictures.

Learning Outcomes:

At the end of the workshop, social workers will:

Ø Understand how to apply key concepts and techniques - using words and pictures as communication tools with young children

Ø Be able to create short stories for young children, using words and pictures to:

Ø obtain information from children to feed into the assessment process

Ø develop the child’s understanding of, and ability to contribute to, care-related decisions that impact on their lived world

Ø provide children with information on the safety planning process, and the creation of plans for care and support.

Delivery:

The focus is on application and adaptation of techniques to practice, to enable social workers to create their own short storybooks as an effective communication tool with young children.

Resources

If desired, two ready-to-use storybooks (£10.00 each) are available for purchase at the workshop: one covering introductions, and the other, assessment of needs. Magentic Story Boards with a range of magnetic pictures and magnetic paper, are also available to purchase at a cost of £30.00 per set.
