Mission: StoriesWork, founded in May 2000, promotes the unique use of folk story analysis in group and individual counseling, through skills-building workshops, consultations, educational materials, and online training for staff and volunteers who work with survivors of domestic violence. StoriesWork's educational web-site (storieswork.org), launched in October, 2000, is expanding to offer resource material and on-line self-study courses for domestic violence counselors. Our techniques empower abused women to gain greater understanding, reduce fears, build self-esteem, evaluate resources, and consider realistic solutions to difficult problems.

Community Reviews

Rating: 4 stars  

StoriesWork shared interesting and discussion-oriented tales with a group of young ex-offenders and senior adults. The stories were short and very thought-provoking, and the staff did a great job of encouraging conversation after sharing the piece. The seniors walked away very happy to have participated and continued some of the discussions after the formal class.
