Listen Up Storytelling supports professionals who care for others to care for themselves. Using storytelling and creative workshops delivered by skilled facilitation, we aim to build confidence as well as increased wellbeing and resilience.
Projects include running a series of workshops for community nurses around secondary trauma to develop a toolkit to support coping and well being for nurses experiencing psychological trauma. Kath is also working in partnership with Edinburgh University, the Scottish Poetry Library and QNIS to develop an anthology of poems for newly qualified nurses.
Kath also joined the Scottish Storytelling Centre as an apprentice story teller last September. A current project which has been postponed due to COVID-19 will culminate in a performance of community nurses' stories.
