TIMESLIPS CREATIVE STORYTELLING
TimeSlips is an improvisational, creative storytelling technique that replaces the pressure to remember with the freedom to imagine. This simple shift - from memory to imagination - can help people with dementia and their loved ones and care partners to find each other.
TimeSlips enables UWM students to have strong and positive relationships with people with dementia - and is often their first encounter with disability and aging in general.
TimeSlips was house at the UWM Center on Age & Community from 2003-2012. In 2013, it became it's own non-profit.
TimeSlips continues to partner extensively with UWM. UWM's Center for Community-based Learning, Leadership, and Research coordinates volunteers and for-credit students who learn the method and practice it throughout participating Creative Trust agencies. In 2012-2013, over 25 students worked with over 150 older adults at 4 care centers to tell countless stories.
TimeSlips online training is also incorporated as a "course text" into several classroom across the Peck School of the Arts.
