Detailed Description

Life story work practices are vital for children in care, helping them to make sense of their family history, why they came into care and what has happened since that time. Overall, life story work provides a foundation for identity, belonging and self-esteem and is a key factor in promoting foster home stability and good mental health. There is no single definition of what life story work is, nor how to do it, and it can comprise a range of diverse practices, including life story books, later life letters and memory boxes.

This session will provide an opportunity for practitioners to engage in current debates regarding life story work and explore what they mean for their practice. After it, participants will: - understand national policy and regulations as they relate to life story work - know about recent research exploring life story work practices and their impact - be able to identify key messages for children and young people, their families and carers - be able to reflect on what those messages mean - for individual practice and for teams.
