The objective of this workshop is to explore with participants how narrative can be used as a tool of listening to, learning about and creating new narratives of care, counseling, connection and community across difference. As a result of participation in this workshop, participants will understand the importance of learning about the story of those who they care for with the understanding that when we learn more fully about each other’s story and the fuller story of our nation, we can reframe our own understanding and bias leading to a better community founded on collaboration and cross racial dialogue and care. 
As a result of this workshop, participants will: 
  • Learn about the history of American race relations and its impact on the racial trauma of black  
  • Examine the legacy of racial narratives and biases in race relations.  
  • Engage narrative and story as a tool of cross-cultural spiritual care and counseling. 
  • Explore the concept of re-storying and the role it can play in reshaping race relations. 
  • Be introduced to practices of “Re-story” as a tool to help transform the dominant narratives that  
     shape their own practices of spiritual care and counseling.
