Story telling is powerful. It allows us to re experience moments in our lives, reflect on both the good and bad and learn more about ourselves while sharing something meaningful with others.
After my grandfather passed away, I started reflecting on how remembrance through story telling can aid in end of life. I learned about Dignity Therapy, a psychotherapy technique developed by Dr. Harvey Chochinov, and founded this nonprofit based on its principles. Everyone deserves the chance to tell their story and for that story to be remembered and I hope to use this biographical approach to help individuals and their families process end of life.
