English books


Handbook of Therapeutic Storytelling

 

The book enables people in the healing professions to utilise storytelling, pictures and metaphors as interventions to help their patients.

 

Communicating in parallel worlds and using simple images and solutions can help to generate positive attitudes, which can then be nurtured and enhanced to great effect. Following an "Introduction" to the therapeutic use of stories, which closes with helpful "Instructions for use", the book is divided into two parts, both of which contain a series of easily accessible chapters. Part One includes stories with specific therapeutic applications linked to symptoms and situations. Part Two explains and investigates methods and offers a wide range of tools; these include trance inductions, adaptation hints, reframing, the use of metaphor and intervention techniques, how stories can be structured, and how to invent your own. The book also contains a detailed reference section with cross-referenced key words to help you find the story or tool that you need.

 

With clear guidance on how stories can be applied to encourage positive change in people, groups and organisations, the Handbook of Therapeutic Storytelling is an essential resource for psychotherapists and other professions of health and social care in a range of different settings, as well as coaches, supervisors and management professionals.

The Blade of Grass in the Desert

 

The book reveals through 100 stories, how storytelling itself is the forgotten medicine for healing the soul.

 

The story begins with the King who is sad about the depression in his land and hopes that the adventure and mystery of storytelling can alleviate the misery. Following an idea of the king's wise men he calls out a conference of storytellers to be held at his court. The stories which are told at the kings court within the ten days of the conference represent ten major fields of storytelling as "partnership", "family life", "loss and berievement", "work" and "health". During the nights a second frame story containing further stories reveils the secrets of therapeutic storytelling.

 

There is a commentary to each story at the end of the book concerning its therapeutic use as well as a key word register and a detailed explanation for the therapist to understand the background and theory behind storytelling, linked to hypnotherapy, systemic therapy and NLP techniques.
