Facilitating Story looks so different when working with a three year old vs. an eight year old vs. a teen. An understanding of Processing and Memory Development is necessary to establish realistic expectations for both the facilitator and the child.

Skills Training will include:

  • Creating the Safe Heart Children need to debrief
  • Listening skills
  • Asking Facilitating Questions to guide the process
  • Development of your own “tool box” for debriefing

Various Tools do different jobs from eliciting story to processing deep loss. Selected tools will be introduced and demonstrated.
