Fostering Storytellers aims to help Foster Carers and Professionals learn storytelling skills to develop relationships, emotional literacy and lay the basis for therapeutic work with the children in their care. The most important aim though is to have fun together using stories – a rich and powerful way of relating.
Workshops have been supported though Fostering Network, Barnardo’s, The Internal Conference on Storytelling for Health and several Local Authorities. In 2012 the Fostering Network commissioned Building Relationships through Storytelling – A Foster Carer’s Guide to Attachment and Stories. One of the workshops is desrcibed below.
