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 introductory workshop is oriented to counsellors, therapists, and social work practitioners who are considering adopting the Life Story Board for their professional use with clients.

The Training Team consists of the LSB creator Dr. Rob Chase, with Sabrina La Tona RSW a  LSB clinician trainer in the Toronto area.  Together we offer a personalized introduction and orientation to the Life Story Board: the conceptual framework, the LSB Toolkit, and basics of the story-boarding process for assessment and therapy.

With an engaging mix of presentation, discussion, demonstration, and hands-on practice with the Life Story Board™, the workshop provides an experiential introduction to this unique tool’s responsiveness.

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.
