Season 2: Episode 2 – Evaluating the impact of life story work

How do we know that Therapeutic Life Story Work is making a difference to the lives of care-experienced children and young people? And how do we gather evidence of the change it makes?


In this episode of the podcast we welcome three guests who have been involved in evaluating new models of life story work: Professor Richard Rose from Therapeutic Life Story Work International; Meisha Taumoefolau, MacKillop Family Services; and Dr James Lucas from Deakin University, who are all joining us from Australia.
