Life Story Work

I work for children in care.  Sometimes we talk about doing life story work with them.  How weird for a stranger to know your life’s story better you do.  How weird to do ‘work’ to release snippets of it.  How I’d hate it if anyone knew my story before me.

  1. I have felt the same way -I’m in a similar work environment. I once challenged my supervisor to make a file containing all information we have on our clients-good, bad and ugly. She did it and shared with us how humiliating she felt. Made everyone open their eyes a bit.
