A Simple Tool

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

StoryCare is very easy to implement. While it was designed to take just a few minutes of your staff’s time each week with very little preparation on your part, don’t let its simplicity lead you to think (or leave you with the impression) that it’s not also a powerful change tool. In fact, the fundamentals of StoryCare draw on cultural traditions going back thousands of years. From the beginning of human history people have been using storytelling to teach and engage each other with important ideas crucial to survival. Contemporary science has confirmed what ancient people intuitively understood—we are all wired for story. In fact, extensive research in the educational field and the social sciences has found that when coupled with reflection, there may be no more powerful ‘springboard’ for changing behavior than storytelling.

StoryCare was created to help you and your team to maintain that focus on ‘getting it right’ with every patient, every day.
