STORYTELLING WORKSHOP FOR FACILITIES
This workshop, taught by New York Times bestselling author and writing coach Anna David and developed under the supervision of board-certified psychiatrist Josh Lichtman, happens at treatment centers, schools, retreats and spiritual venues. Its purpose is to show participants how to convert their life struggles into essays and then performances.
Born out of David’s experience with healing as a result of bringing recovery stories to the stage, the workshop is backed up by studies which show that writing and sharing about complicated issues is healing not only for the performer but also for the audience.
It covers every element of SAMHSA’s “Eight Dimensions of Wellness,” teaching participants to share experiences they might have never discussed and in turn gain a new perspective on their lives.
