Our Story-Telling web site was formally launched at our March national conference in Leeds. We reported first on its contents in a post, Story-Telling in Youth Work : Web Resource now on-line, which noted.
This resource brings together some of the learning from In Defence of Youth Work’s (IDYW) approach to youth work story-telling as this has evolved over the past three-years. From both the participant’s and the facilitator’s points of view, it considers how examples of practice have been narrated and analysed in workshops specifically designed for workers (including young volunteers), managers, students and their tutors.
It also focuses on the use of story-telling in a range of work settings: in face-to-face work with young people; as an aid to organisational change through staff training, supervision and monitoring; in the teaching and assessment of youth and community work students; and for project evaluation. Also included are some of the support materials developed by IDYW.
In the following video Bernard Davies introduces the resource to the participants at conference.
