This practical handbook begins with the philosophy and psychology underpinning the therapeutic value of story telling. It shows how to use story telling as a therapeutic tool with children and how to make an effective response when a child tells a story to you. It is an essential accompaniment to the series Stories for Troubled Children and covers issues such as: Why story-telling is such a good way of helping children with their feelings; What resources you may need in a story-telling session; How to construct your own therapeutic story for a child; What to do when children tell stories to you; Things to do and things to say when working with a children's story.

Reviews

'Clear, concise and free from jargon. This book contains many sensitively placed and moving examples of children's own stories...this is a book that champions a child's right to have all their feelings fully acknowledged.' - Sian Jones, Storylines 'This book is written be an author who has significant professional experience dealing with child mental health issues...a very practical book. There are many examples of stories in the book, all of which are carefully analysed by the author.' - Special! 'It is helpful and illuminating book for carers...The book contains some great pointers on how to respond...I especially liked the warning not to fall into being a psychoanalyst when a child is playing.' - Bryony Pogson, Fundraiser The Fostering Network, Foster Care 'I very much liked this book. Its use with adopted children with anxieties and traumas (patent and hidden) is obvious...the book's success rests on the fact it gives good instructions of how to use story and play therapy as a layperson, with excellent use of case-studies to support the instructions. I think it is indeed successful.' - Sheena Macrae, Adoption Today 'It has an impressive bibliography, is clearly set out and easy to use for reference...many other useful ideas...these books could be very useful...general thumbs up. A lot of care and thought has gone into them.' - Sue Castle, Facts & Fiction 'Peppered with case studies illustrating how stories have helped children to change their lives...the packs will be of value to counsellors and therapists.' - Olivia O'Sullivan, TES Curriculum Special: Special Needs 'A series of 'therapeutic' books for children with emotional worries...each of the five books takes a particular emotional problem and relates it to a comforting story...they will be useful in settings with children with particular problems.' - Practical Pre-School
