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.

Editor´s Note from Michael Williams: Note from Co-Editor Michael Williams: I made this video as part of a course I'm taking aimed at creating 'soulful' videos. My task was to create a video that told a story using imagery, sound and text. The story here is a reminder that we all need to return to a place that nourishes us and reminds us to take time for ourselves. It was filmed at North Berwick in Scotland, not too far from my home in Edinburgh. I hope you enjoy it.

by David Keith

In Part 1 of this two-part personal reflection on a day in his work with young people, David Keith—founder of the Juniper programme—reveals the power of 'telling your story' with a group of school children. During a session with a group of 11-12yr-olds, David encourages children to share their feelings through metaphor and personal story, a process which unexpectedly uncovers a trove of hidden grief, grief untold. The healing begins...

 

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


 

"Stories are the collective wisdom of everyone who has ever lived. Your job as a storyteller is not simply to entertain. Nor is it to be noticed for the way you turn a phrase. You have a very important job - one of the most important. Your job is to let people know that everyone shares their feelings - and that these feelings bind us. Your job is a healing art, and like all healers, you have a responsibility. Let people know they are not alone. You must make people understand that we are all the same."

Editor's Note from Norma-Jean Strickland: If it has been awhile since you listened to portions of Bill Moyers’ classic interviews with Joseph Campbell entitled, “The Power of Myth,” then I offer this conversation about our ancestors – the first storytellers. Evidence suggests that stories began 250,000 years ago and it is Joseph Campbell’s belief that we carry these stories in our very bones today. I hope you enjoy this dialogue as much as I do!

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


 

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...

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.
