The Vidaview Life Story Board™ is an innovative visual information system and interview tool that offers a new approach for therapists and counselling professionals.
Through the LSB process, therapist and client collaborate in the creation of a lifescape, a multi-dimensional representation of the client’s life situation. Because a lifescape is visual, tactile, and dynamic, each session opens unique opportunities for expression, insight, and exploration. The open-ended symbols transcend cultural and language differences, making the LSB relevant in a diverse range of contexts.

The Life Story Board™ originated in the 1990s as a response to the need for more sensitive and engaged ways to interview children in war-affected countries. Since 2007 the LSB has been used in a variety of North American settings with both child and adult clients: in multicultural community service agencies, schools, and private counselling practice.
Ongoing evolution of the LSB Toolkit and process is guided by a collaborative community of researchers and counselling professionals dedicated to exploring and refining LSB’s potential as a clinical assessment tool and recording system.
