Editor's Note from Michael Williams: As we approach Remembrance Day on November 11th, we take time to reflect on the sacrifice of several generations of men and women warriors in war. Importantly, we also turn our thoughts to those who need our compassion and help to recover from the physical, emotional and spiritual wounds of war. 'Theatre of War' is one such healing project...

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Kim Murriera

Kim MurrieraAt first the children and I were in a honeymoon period. This lasted for almost a month, and then slowly things began to fall apart. Children were falling out of chairs, lunches were being thrown across the room, physical fights were breaking out on the playground and the social atmosphere of the class was unkind. I was at a loss as what to do with the children. It was obvious they were feeling abandoned and were acting out these feelings. . .

I recently made a trip to Dubai on the Arabian Peninsula to tell stories at a festival. Telling stories to any group of people always feels like a privilege to me; to be entrusted to guide people’s imaginations through darkness and danger, laughter and light. But this felt special in a different way...

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Norma-Jean Strickland,
ATH Co-Editor of Therapeutic Storytelling

In 1999, just before my 47th birthday, I had major surgery for the first time in my life. It was invasive because it involved removal of an organ, so a hospital stay was required, together with several weeks of recuperation at home. Needless to say, before the actual date of surgery, I was consumed with thoughts of this procedure...

 

Editor's Note from Norma-Jean Strickland: It's important to listen to what you're telling your Self because you always listen, especially at the deepest subconscious level.

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Michael Williams, PhD,
Co-Editor of Therapeutic Storytelling

The role of the audience is primary to the storytelling performance. Without someone to listen where would the storyteller be? A story needs sharing with another pair of ears, a willing heart and mind. Treat your audience with respect and they will reciprocate ensuring an enjoyable storytelling performance for everyone...

Therapeutic Storytelling


by David G. Blumenkrantz

Wrapped in a synthesis of ancient stories from antiquity, youth & community development through rites of passage can be the RITE story for modernity. When you come right down to it we have central “stories” in the form of theories that inform policies (another form of story) that result in programs, which are the manifestation of the theoretical story in action. All of these stories—theories, policies, programs—are “delivery systems for the teller’s agenda.” Read Part I here.

 

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: David Blumenkrantz, co-founder and executive director of the Center for Youth and Community and the co-designer of the Rite of Passage Experience, continues to explore the importance of raising our young people on healthy stories that respect their inner creative and spiritual lives and help them bridge the divide between youth and adulthood.

Moggys Tale: A Story Coaching Journey

by Michael Williams, PhD, Co-Editor of Therapeutic Storytelling

A middle-aged woman—a former librarian—stands before us, takes a deep breath, looks us in the eye and begins. Over the next five minutes she tells a story of a cat. The cat once belonged to her, in another place, in another time. Then the cat died. End of story.
