CTSW Update June 2021


We’re increasing our presence on social media channels and would like to ask for your support in helping to promote the work of the Centre for Therapeutic Storywriting. 

We hope that SEN professionals will connect with us on LinkedIn, where we’ll be promoting concepts, courses and training opportunities. Facebook will be the place where we promote our work to parents and the general public. On Twitter we will seek to have interesting conversations about therapeutic storywriting, and highlighting work done by similar organisations. 

This Wednesday (9th June 2021) we’ll be encouraging a Twitter discussion on the topic of #activelistening, a key component of Therapeutic Storywriting. Please join in the conversation with your thoughts and experiences.
