Rewriting our Stories: Education, Empowerment and Wellbeing
By Dr Derek Gladwin
Throughout human existence, no matter where our place of origin or when in history, storytelling shapes our societies, influencing personal, sociocultural, educational, and public discourses that impact how we live. Creating and communicating the language of stories – to ourselves and others – enhances our innate voices and can empower us to engage in greater empathy, compassion, and possibility. Intended for educators, leaders, therapists, mental health professionals, and youth organisations, as well as the general public, Derek Gladwin offers practical and positive tools for everyone to re-author their lives.
Dr Derek Gladwin, Assistant Professor in Language & Literacy Education at University of British Columbia, has authored books on narrative, media, and eco-literacy, including Contentious Terrains and Ecological Exile. He also supports individuals and groups with narrative coaching.
