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.

by Michael Williams, PhD,
Co-Editor of Therapeutic

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...

 

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: Story coaching is more than just learning techniques and skills. It's about diving deep into your inner ocean of experiences to discover your dreams, demons, and desires. It's about exploring that inner landscape of story and memory. It's about releasing your inner storyteller and sharing who you really are, telling the stories that need to be told. This story is based on an actual experience although the names have been changed. Over and over I am struck by the courage of people to become vulnerable, to find their voice and become themselves.

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Lisa Bloom

So it looks something like this.

Beautiful, young woman. Rich, successful, living the life.

Happy marriage. Gorgeous, perfectly behaved kids...


Editor's Note from Michael Williams: Being authentic is something we all strive for, but it's not easy given the many roles we're asked to play in life. Story Coach founder Lisa Bloom strips away the 'mask' and explores the reality beneath and suggests that our vulnerability is what makes us human.

We arrived in plenty of time, exactly three hours before we were due to take off. There was no security check, surprisingly enough, and then they told us that the flight was cancelled...

 

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: Story-coach Lisa Bloom recounts a personal experience to remind us of which stories we buy into -- disaster stories or opportunity stories? Read on and then tell me, which one is yours? A must-read for business owners and creative entrepreneurs.

 

Therapeutic Storytelling

At some point though, maybe during the period of diagnosis and movement into surgery, I stopped using the calendar abruptly. I had moved into a shocked state. This new life of having an illness quickly took over my routine of work and vacation, and my focus turned to just...getting...through...the...day...

ATH Asst. Editor of Therapeutic Storytelling

What do you do when you feel like you’ve lost your way in life? There are many ways of seeking help if you find yourself in this situation. One way is to “speak the unspeakable” which can be accomplished through creative therapy using art, music, dance or words...

 

Editor's Note from Norma-Jean Strickland: People dealing specifically with therapy may find this article useful, whether they are the professional or the client.

Thirty-five years ago, I revealed a terrible secret.

I told my friend something that she was not supposed to know. It was a dreadful secret that had been held in their family forever...

 

 

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Cheri Baker

Appreciative Inquiry is a consulting methodology or philosophy which states that powerful change can arise from a focus on what is already working well in organizations. Rather than the old problem solving approach of fixing what is broken, AI tells us to focus on what is strongest, and then translate those strengths into action...

 

Editor's Note: In this article, consultant Cheri Baker shares her experience of using Appreciative Inquiry and storytelling to transform and empower a business team.

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Martha Alderson, MA

The Universal Story is the heartbeat of the universe. It's in the undercurrent of every breath you take, every story you tell yourself, and all the stories you write. The Universal Story represents the story of one man changing and evolving as part of the bigger story of all of nature and world around us undergoing constant change and evolution...

 

Editor's Note from Norma-Jean Strickland: Martha Alderson, MA, is a writer by night, but by day she helps other writers achieve their dreams of completing a worthy project. During a plot consultation with her, writers recount the scenes and events, ideas and vision for their stories. Throughout the process, she whispers plot parameters, offers tips on theme and nuance, character and depth, tricks for layering and pacing, all with the hope of reawakening in writers the rhythm of the Universal Story form.

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


 

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: The founder of the Narrative Medicine programme at Columbia University, Dr. Rita Charon, gives a TEDxTalk in Atlanta on the importance of honoring our stories of illness. Dr. Charon gets to the heart of the meaning of medicine and the importance of storytelling to our health and well-being.

A friend recently introduced me to the composer Eric Whitacre and his “Virtual Choir,” which has become an Internet sensation. I immediately fell in love with his music and this extraordinary concept of using the Internet for creative collaboration. Naturally, I wanted to share it and thought of including it here at ATH. Imagine my surprise (and delight) to learn that it had already been posted in the ATH Arts and Art Therapy section. I encourage you to look at it (but after you read my article, please)...

 

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


 

Editor´s Note from Michael Williams: Storyteller Burt Meyer from North Carolina tells the tale of "Jack and Old Man Death", one of many Jack tales that made their way over from Scotland and Ireland to the Appalachians in the U.S. It's a classic story and one that was meant to help us become more accepting of our mortality.

ATH Co-Editor of Therapeutic Storytelling

“Just try it, it’s good for you.” How many times have you heard that before? Well, in the case of stories, it’s really true. Stories are good for you...

 

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: Increasingly, age-old experience of the positive impact of storytelling is being backed up by research. In this article, I share my thoughts on the "goodness" of storytelling as experienced in my work with young people and others.
