Life Stories

not available

Learning Object

This free course, Life stories, looks at the way in which objects, trends, cultures or disabilities may contribute to a person's identity, and the contribution that our own life stories make to who we are, and how remembering and revisiting our past may help us to move forward with our lives. After studying this course, you should be able to outline how encouraging people to talk about the past can be a way of helping them to manage change in their lives and establish identity in the present, demonstrate an understanding of the basic principles in life story work which could apply at any age or stage of life, and appreciate that life story work is as much about dealing with the present and preparing for the future as it is sorting out feelings about the past.
