The Life Story Board™ is an innovative and versatile visual communication tool enabling diverse modes of expression, sharing, and reflection within the therapeutic relationship.

This one-day hands-on workshop is for counsellors, therapists, and social work practitioners interested in the Life Story Board for their professional use with clients. As well it’s a great  starting point for researchers and grad students considering the LSB as an interview tool for social research applications.

The workshop is an engaging mix of presentation, discussion, demonstration, and hands-on practice with the Life Story Board.

The Training Team consists of the LSB creator Dr. Rob Chase, University of Manitoba, with Alfred Koineh RSW MSW, Social Worker and Program Manager of the Community Outreach and Multicultural Wellness Program, at Mount Carmel Clinic, Winnipeg.

Together they  introduce:

  • the conceptual framework of the LSB
  • orientation to the LSB Toolkit
  • basic story-boarding approaches for assessment and therapy
  • practice dyads

We also offer workshop participants an ‘After Care Package’ following the Basic Intro workshop, to facilitate the practice necessary to be comfortable using the LSB with clients. (see details below).


Completing the Workshop (7hrs)  and Aftercare (4 hrs) is pre-approved for Continuing Education Credits by Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association CCPA.
