the value of life story projects

I’ve yet to find a downside to supporting people to tell their stories. I have found that life story projects have the capacity to;

  • support identity
  • increase self-esteem
  • provide a safe haven in the chaos of life’s challenges
  • offer opportunities for reciprocated conversations through shared experience
  • shift the balance of power
  • improve the continuity and the quality of care
  • provide a place to express loss and to grieve
  • celebrate individual lives
