Testimonials from participants in workshops on:
participation in this workshop had gains? What gains
what has changed in their life

our ideas for the stories
Reminiscence therapy for people with
Alzheimer's and digital storytelling
Reminiscence therapy invites a person with Alzheimer's to exercise
her long-term memory by encouraging her to share positive
memories from younger days.
The person with dementia and their families must create some digital
storytelling's about positive memories.
when people with dementia are confused and agitated their families can
explore the digital stories created with them
Resilience and emotional aspects of
women ageing in Peniche – Portugal
Peniche is a fishing area where economic and personal life depends
mostly on either fishing activities or manufacturing sector related to it.
Old women told us interesting stories that depict how women live fishing,
waiting for fishing boats in the middle of the night, how they care for
children and lived their marriage, which reconstruct the way of life of the
last eighty years in this city.
Storytelling to promote hope
Hope is essential to life.
Telling stories is a powerful situation to allow people to explore their own
experiences of hope.
Sharing positive experiences with others influences others’ perspectives and
could turn the negative perspective into a new way of looking the reality.
By sharing hope stories, people can play a hope role model for others and have
a positive impact on other people’s hopes (Querido, 2012).
Querido is a teacher from my school and my PhD student. She use digital
stories to promote hope and quality of life in people at end of life with good
