In this training session, we will explore what it means to apply a “Narrative Analysis of Power” to DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) work, and share the Story-based Strategy approach for assessing and developing culturally responsive skills to improve client engagement in services, relationships between clients and providers, treatment retention and outcomes, and to address ongoing organizational and interpersonal challenges.

During the workshop we will review critical concepts related to equality, equity and liberation to create memorable demonstrations of how Story-based Strategy and DEI work, together, can respond to the need for greater inclusivity and anti-ageism. Participants begin practicing right away, learning how the concepts advocate for the change necessary to address issues in aging and to decrease disparities.

Participants in this webinar will be:

  • Introduced to The 4th Box as a DEI Framework that they can immediately use and apply to organizational and interpersonal assessment and planning;
  • Introduced to Story-based Strategy to show connections to DEI in theory;
  • Taught ways to apply The 4th Box Framework when approaching and applying DEI principles in their work and day-to-day lives.
