Workshop Description: Stories provide entrée to relationships, are essential for prospective sharing and are a means of understanding and empowerment. Story frames are structured story prompts that can be used in intercultural communication. Prompts provide participants with “permission” to share, while at the same time allowing the stories to be directed to suit communicative goals.

We will explore the power of narrative, consider culturally sensitive approaches to narrative engagement, and develop our own story frames. The goal of this workshop is for all of us to become more narratively resourceful as we talk, listen, create, and celebrate the power of stories.
