Workshop on Therapeutic Storytelling with Susan Perrow to be held in Cleveland Heights

Addressing Challenging Life Situations through the Medium of Story
By: Babies Need Boxes Ohio
CLEVELAND - Oct. 3, 2018 - PRLog -- Stories and storytelling are an integral part of our humanity. In this workshop, participants will be helped to find the 'storyteller' within. Examples, ideas and techniques for writing healing ('medicinal') stories will be shared and the therapeutic use of metaphor explored.  With the support of a story-making framework, and several creative writing exercises, the participants will be guided to create their own stories; for themselves and/or their families - stories to give hope, stories to help find a way forward, stories to build resilience in difficult times.

This event is offered by Babies Need Boxes Ohio and will focus on supporting women during the postpartum transition period.

SUSAN PERROW (M.
