This training will:

  • Create a space where people can share freely and safely
  • Explain what stories are and why they are important
  • Explore how stigma is learned from stories, and how stories can challenge stigma
  • Develop participants’ skill and confidence in sharing stories
  • Help shape participants’ stories and find the best place to start when telling it

Participants will receive an honorarium.
