THERAPEUTIC STORYTELLING

What is Therapeutic Storytelling? Stories use metaphor and imagery to change the way we see our lives and the world, offering healing and growth to everyone - teller and listener alike. 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.

“Writing, like life itself, is a voyage of discovery. The adventure is a metaphysical one; it is a way of approaching life indirectly, of acquiring a total rather than a partial view of the universe. The writer lives between the upper and lower worlds: he takes the path in order eventually to become that path himself.”

~ Henry Miller

'Theatre of War' is one such healing project...

Editor's Note from Norma-Jean Strickland: Is Laughter Therapeutic?

Editor's Note from Norma-Jean Strickland: Our lives, our cultures, are composed of many overlapping stories. Novelist Chimamanda Adichie tells the story of how she found her authentic cultural voice–and warns that if we hear only a single story about another person or country, we risk a critical misunderstanding. When listening and viewing this video, be sure to turn up your volume. The video is just under 19 minutes and is exceptional.

She shares some of her beliefs and techniques for working with poetry and story therapeutically and is aimed mostly at health practitioners and educators but it will of interest to anyone who works with the creative arts and therapies.

People who attended “The Mysterium”  in Loveland, Colorado with Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés had an opportunity to obtain many of her books and audio programs. I was fortunate enough to get three items which I understand are currently out of print.

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