We will be posting definitions collected from our members and different sources. Have interaction with a ‘Story' - we now have regular talks with our volunteers concerning the Story Store - explaining the process, from this we determine a potential story teller. Write a ‘Story' - we ask the volunteer to write their story in their own words, with a start, a middle and an end. We meet with this particular person several times speaking by what they've written (and normally what they haven't) and between us we develop a story ranging from the beginning of their psychological health journey to where they're at current.
Time shall be spent with this individual making certain that they're joyful to go forward with their story, we undergo the indicators we use when in a session so that people story the story is relaxed and emotionally prepared. A decision is then made if the Story needs to carry on or take day trip in another room where they'll discuss by means of how they are feeling.
The staff member will contact the Story over the next few days making certain that they are emotionally feeling okay and will proceed till they are pleased that our Story is back on form. We measure the impact of Story Shop on our Stories by speaking with them during an event and when we get together with new volunteers to encourage them to turn out to be Stories.
