This one-day Basic Life Story Board™ workshop presents the LSB conceptual framework, the LSB Toolkit, and basics of the story-boarding process.

Using an engaging mix of demonstration, discussion, and hands-on practice, the workshop is oriented to counselors, therapists, and social work practitioners.  Having a first hand experience of your own and others’ narratives depicted on the Life Story Board™ is a great way to be introduced to this unique tool’s responsiveness.

There is a learning curve to be ready to use the LSB comfortably in your setting with clients.  Realistically, 8 to 12 hours of study, play and practice is necessary- to review the LSB kit, customize your set, and get a basic feel for the system. It’s best to have one or more to learn and practice together, to consider your context and rehearse.  To facilitate this,  we offer workshop participants an ‘After Care Package’ following the Basic Intro workshop (see details below).

Workshop participants are invited to join Vidaview’s Practice Community’ of LSB users, and share questions, comments and experiences on a secure private LSB users’ discussion forum

Registration is now open. To register, click here.

After you complete your registration, we will email you further details about the schedule for the day, and resources for suggested pre-workshop LSB orientation.
