On the 12th of June, the Sharing Stories Venture hosted a stall at the ‘Beyond the Therapy Room’ conference in London. The conference was aimed at exploring the impact that Clinical Psychology can have beyond individual therapeutic work, with many speakers looking towards community engagement; listening to everyone who wants to have a voice; being proactive; and speaking out as a profession as ways to help support this.
These ideas fitted well with the Sharing Stories ethos of engaging with all voices within a community and listening to each other as a way of improving emotional wellbeing across the board. We were fortunate enough to be offered the opportunity to speak at the conference, which was a fantastic way of spreading the Sharing Stories Venture to a new audience. Many thanks to the Beyond the Therapy Room organisers for their support and encouragement.
