Topic: Building hope, optimism and clarity using a narrative framework in education, workplaces and practice
Presenter: Mark Franklin, Practice Leader at CareerCycles, University of Toronto instructor and co-founder of OneLifeTools
In this webinar you will learn about a narrative framework, interventions, and tools for groups and individuals, that build storytelling and story-listening skills, and bring Fredrickson’s broaden-and-build to life. Mark Franklin, instructor at University of Toronto and co-founder of OneLifeTools, will first examine the growing evidence for narrative postmodern practice, blended-delivery methods and gamification, through three outcome studies: 1) single-session narrative consultation; 2) narrative, strengths-based method of practice; 3) qualitative study of graduate course at University of Toronto. Applications for the holistic, narrative assessment system will then be discussed for post-secondary education, youth, workplace engagement, coaching practice, and retirement planning. Finally, Mark will outline the framework shown to increase hope, efficacy, resilience and optimism (subscales of psychological capital) to help you evolve and empower your practice, and to expand opportunities for narrative methods in programs, curriculum, and practice building.
