"Recovery is a process, a way of life, an attitude, and a way of approaching the day's challenges...The need is to meet the challenge of the disability and to re-establish a new and valued sense of integrity and purpose within and beyond the limits of the disability; the aspiration is to live, work and love in a community in which one makes a significant."
Patricia E. Deegan, National Consumer Leader

TELL MY STORY - next session starts 26Sept2018
More details on this workshop will be posted here as soon as available and in the newsletter.
This workshop consists of three modules offered on a rotating basis.
Each module covers a specific topic and allows time for participants to share the stories
they have prepared for the group. The flexibility of this workshop gives you the option to
come for the topics that interest you without having to present. You also have the option
to practice presenting and receive feedback as you develop your story. All of this happens in a non-judgmental and encouraging atmosphere...with quite a
few laughs along the way.
Each workshop will include 1 hour spent on one of the three modules followed by 1 hour of practice/presenting time.
Module 1 – Sharing your story
This module covers the why, when, where, who, and how of sharing your story. We will explore your motivation and “readiness” for sharing your story, identify suitable audiences and discuss how to engage them, and learn presentation skills.
Module 2 – Developing your story.
This module covers the 3 components of your story; the opening, body and closing. We use structured and creative exercises to start putting your story down on paper.
Module 3 – Refining your story
In this module, we explore the content of our stories in finer detail and discuss how our language and our
approach help us communicate our message. In this interactive module, we will ensure that our stories
connect with the reason of the mind and the wisdom of the heart.
Module 4 - Developing Presentation Skills
Module 5 - Final Practice Session (reserved for current workshop participants)
