What a wonderful question about story. I've been influenced quite a bit by Salvador Minuchin's work in Family Therapy. He uses metaphors to reframe problems and give people a different way to think about their relationships. I think stories work in a similar way. People relate to stories and it allows them to consider things from a different perspective and also engages the creative mind which opens people to a more flexible kind of thinking.
