Phone: 03 9020 1833


At this training, you will learn about:

  • Current research and thinking on Life Story Work and the role it can take in family life
  • The opportunity to explore, in a practical way, how to create and use life stories
  • An invaluable ‘toolbox’ of suggested strategies and activities, and
  • Shared learning, reflection and problem-solving skills.

Children of families created through Adoption, Permanent Care, Foster Care and Kinship Care often require additional guidance from the adults in their lives to ensure they have opportunities to record their history. They may also need help reflecting upon the impact of this narrative on their life. Life Story Work is a researched and highly regarded mechanism for providing structure and purpose to children and families engaged in this activity.
