They connect us to each other and help us find meaning and hope. Therapeutic storytelling can change the way we see our lives and the world. Using metaphor, stories offer healing to everyone.

Editor's Note from Norma-Jean Strickland: Parents sometimes become storytellers whether they want to or not. This YouTube video is from the Minnesota Public Radio station and is about a mother answering her young daughter’s relentless questions about sex. It made me laugh so hard, I nearly cried! I hope you enjoy it, too!

Reviewed by Keith Varnum

I have just released my first book and it’s about prayer. This book was a complete surprise to me and came about in a most unexpected way. Just over a year ago, I awoke from a disembodied voice dream that said: “The words will come. Write them down.” They did and I did! On New Year’s Eve 2010, I started writing my book at 6:00 pm and the majority of it was finished in 72 hours, including the selection of most of the accompanying photographs (which I also took). I am not necessarily saying this book was channeled, but it did come “through” me...

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


 

Editor's Note from Norma-Jean Strickland: Visual storytelling surpasses language barriers.  This video offers a brief conversation with BBC photographer Timothy Allen who participated in filming the BBC series called Human Planet. Although this BBC program aired in March of 2000, it is an extraordinary reminder of the beauty of our world, the diversity of our cultures and the ongoing need to increase awareness of our shared human condition. This is our story--of what it's like to be a human being living on planet earth.

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Edward Tick

Warriors in traditional societies served the need for protection, and all that was done was done in the tribe’s name. They had rituals transferring responsibility for actions during warfare from veterans to the entire culture. Ultimately leaders, not ordinary troops, were held responsible for the results of battle and for the deaths that occurred...

 

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: A short time ago, the Soldier's Heart organization was one of our featured charities. Its founder, Ed Tick, Ph.D., has worked with war veterans or “warriors” for more than 30 years. His article tells of the importance of encouraging warriors to share their stories to enable healing from the trauma of war and from associated illnesses such as PTSD. Continued from Part 1.

 

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


 

Editor's Note from Norma-Jean Strickland: In 1996, TimeSlips founder Anne Basting was curious... could improvisation and creative drama techniques that were so powerful for healthy older adults prove helpful for people with Alzheimer's and dementia? TimeSlips is creative storytelling that lets your imagination soar...

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


 

Editor's Note from Norma-Jean Strickland: This is a 10-minute video featuring Jackie Merrill, who presents stories to elementary-aged children in the oral tradition, who then goes on to speak of the importance of the role of elders in our society and keeping the art of storytelling alive. She is also Chairperson of the Board of an intergenerational organization called Storybinders, which is a nonprofit organization dedicated to telling (not reading) stories to children in schools.

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.
