Stories in session: storytelling in clinical practice

This workshop, facilitated by Catherine McCarthy, MSW, co-founder of The Moth's Education Program, and James Robinson, LCSW, will introduce foundational concepts of storytelling technique such as scene, detail, and theme, and will examine how listening for elements of story within the clinical encounter can enhance empathic attunement and advance therapeutic work.

Catherine McCarthy, MSW, is the co-founder and former Senior Manager of the Moth Education Program, where she helped thousands of young people and educators to build confidence, reflect on their lives, and amplify their voices. She is also a former director on The Moth Mainstage, and the stories she has directed can be read in The New York Times Best Seller The Moth Presents: Occasional Magic and The Moth Presents: All These Wonders; and can be heard on The Moth Radio Hour and podcast. Catherine holds a Master’s in Social Work from Fordham University, and serves as a psychotherapist and Director of Education at Kip.

James Robinson, LCSW, works as a psychotherapist and clinical supervisor at Kip. James’s approach to psychotherapy is informed by multiple schools of thought including Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Self Psychology, Motivational Interviewing, Attachment Therapy, Gestalt therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
