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 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 say when working with a child's story.
