The Intersection of Storytelling, Mental Health, & Edu

Mar 6, 2024

3:30pm – 4:00pm CT

The session will focus on understanding the means by which our emotional storytelling narrative and mental health can be better understood and leveraged for improving outcomes for students, teachers and overall Edu systems. I intend to outline a framework for using these as a Wellness approach in Education settings. We will explore how Psychology and Black Speculative Fiction can be leveraged as tools toward this goal. We will engage meditative, cognitive, grounding and affirming tools for growing the personal and learning environments.
