narratives for well-being on/cafnarrative.pdf

The fully-referenced monograph shows how a single story can be set down in many different ways.  It develops a five-scene storyboarding technique.  And that allows it to extend the process into a narrative-based action-planning sequence.  It highlights


>            the value of engaging students - with other people’s stories, and their own
>            how this relates to education for well-being
>            where ’emotional intelligence’ relates to these processes
>            how thoughts and feelings are linked
>            how social context is always part of the action
>            how storyboarding feeds in personal-development planning
>            the possibilities and limits of learning from storytelling


This material is useful for teachers, advisers and mentors in all aspects of personal-and-social development and the trainers and consultants who support them
