A MANUAL TO IMPLEMENT NARRATIVE BASED SESSIONS FOR INFORMAL CARERS
This manual is the second outcome of the SINCALA project. It is a practical resource that intends to provide professionals from the health and social care sectors with a methodology to implement support sessions for carers based on the reading of stimuli (such as poems, tales or extracts from longer texts), the exchange of feelings raised by this activity and their crystallization through expressive and spontaneous writing techniques.
The manual provides background information, step-by-step guidelines for the implementation of the sessions as well as a selection of stimuli available in the different partner languages to be used during the workshops, with the ultimate goal to allow more and more professionals to exploit the lessons learnt through the Sincala project.
The manual can be downloaded in English, Estonian, Greek, Russian, Italian, Portuguese and Slovenian from this link: https://sincala.eu/documents-2/
