This Guide is a beautiful award winning workbook designed to help a person tell his or her life story. Page by page, it suggests topics--such as Family, Adult Life, Growing Older, and Reflections--and questions to reflect upon. The questions can be helpful to the person sharing the memories, as well as provide other family members with a way to elicit stories and experiences.
This companion DVD to A Guide for Recalling and Telling Your Life Story offers practical suggestions from hospice workers and patients on how to use The Guide as a tool to relive the experiences of growing up and growing older. Also includes tips on using tools such as audio cassette recorders or video recorders to capture the stories people have to tell. Narrated by Arnie Warren; 23 minutes.
