Part of my work involves training people in recovery from mental illness to support their peers along their own recovery journeys. A critical component of this work is the framing an use of one's personal story in service to others and to the organization in which one works. . As a brief example, we differentiate between a "recovery story" and an "illness story," based in part on the extent to which a person characterizes their experience as one of survival and overcoming adversity or as one of suffering and limitation. We discuss at length the effectiveness of various story-sharing techniques. . I would be interested in the author's thoughts on the use of a story as referent once the story has been told -- what makes it effective, and what skills do we apply as we determine what what parts of our stories to use, and how we do so. .
