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.

Leanora Ucko was the mentor for the full-time faculty members who were teaching the course. Through this experience I came to appreciate her remarkable knowledge and caring.i got in touch with her when I heard about StoriesWork.
