Building Block to Resilience #6: Storytelling | Bounce Back Generation

Storytelling is whichever form of creative expression through which we define our own stories, draw our own meaning from them, and share how we bounce back from them. We often think our own stories are not “bad enough” or “not interesting”, but every single one of our stories are important. Through telling our stories and looking back over what happened, we gain a sense of meaning and recognize our own resilience.

Each of BBG’s 6 Building Blocks to Resilience are the tools we need to bounce back from toxic stress and trauma. Adults who model to children the six building blocks of protection, relationship, coping skills, a can-do attitude, belonging, and storytelling are the Resilience Builders we need to transform our homes, schools, and communities into places where each of us can thrive.

⚡️ Who Are We? ⚡️

Bounce Back Generation’s mission is to help individuals, families, organizations and systems bounce back from toxic stress and trauma by building and sharing practical tools for resilience.

In 2011, we began our work as the Healthy Generations Project in a public housing community in San Francisco. A grandmother told us “we are all suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder” because of the constant presence of violent crime, drug use, poverty, institutional racism, and domestic dysfunction. That moment set us on a journey to understand how stress and trauma were impacting the community, and inspired us to work together to build resilience.
