with Dr Margot Sunderland (author) and Andrea Perry (publisher in mental health)
Therapeutic stories can change children’s and teenagers' lives by providing them with accurate empathy for their painful life experiences and psychological messages, key to change. Therapeutic stories offer the relief of feeling truly understood, sometimes for the very first time, and empower with options for a way forward. They also provide ‘protection of the metaphor’ when a child or teenager is not yet ready to talk about painful issues more directly. Dr Margot Sunderland (author of many child therapeutic stories) and Andrea Perry (publisher) will together take you through the process of 'seed of an idea' to acceptance of your book by a publisher.
When so many children are suffering from mental health problems, the field needs far more therapeutic story books, so come along and become a significant author in the field.
