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.

by Lisa Bloom

It was the height of the troubles.

There were incidents almost every day.

It was hard to see any pattern. Nowhere was safe, every place a potential target. No specific groups were mentioned, everyone felt vulnerable...

 

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: In her recent blog article, Story Coach Lisa Bloom—no stranger to chaos and violence – brings a sobering perspective to the recent events in the world.

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: Where does creative inspiration spring from? At TEDIndia, Hollywood/Bollywood director Shekhar Kapur ("Elizabeth," "Mr. India") pinpoints his source of creativity: sheer, utter panic. He shares a powerful way to unleash your inner storyteller.

 

Storytelling


by Joan Stockbridge

Yesterday I flew back from my nephew’s wedding. It was a beautiful wedding, celebrated in the same little stone church where I’d been married 36 years earlier. And the reception was very festive, with the dance floor crowded all night...

 

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: As All Souls Day approaches, I am reminded of how many cultures honour their dead with a meal, a visit to the grave, and sharing of memories. No one is ever dead, an ancient tale reminds us, as long as we keep telling stories about the departed. In this poignant article, storyteller, spiritual director and SoulCollage® facilitator Joan Stockbridge recounts the importance of “ceremony” as a way of dealing with death and grief.

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Laura Simms

The Journey of the Healer as Teller of Tales is complex:

As a storyteller I have learned that to tell a story and lead others through it with a depth of intimacy and distance (simultaneously) I need to have lived the story myself. It is not always the incidents of the tale that I know, but the experience of the journey...


Editor's Note from Michael Williams: As Laura points out, the journey of the storyteller as healer is a long and complex one. Yet, it is absolutely necessary, for the storyteller cannot take his or her audience on an emotional journey without having travelled the path beforehand. In this article, Laura shares her map of one of those journeys.

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Lisa Bloom

I’d like to tell you a story. It’s about a particular woman, it’s about every person. It’s about me and it’s about you. It is a story about our stories...

 

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: I met Lisa a few years ago during a storytelling tour in Israel and have since then become a big fan of her work. She's not only a great storyteller but an inspiring story coach helping others find the courage to share their stories. The following story is taken from her newsletter and is typical of the passion Lisa brings to her work.

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: The death of storyteller Syd Lieberman leaves a hole in the storytelling world that will be tough to fill. In this video, award-winning storyteller and teacher Lieberman reminds why he was much loved. Here he demonstrates why story is the most effective way for teachers to share their experiences in order to build support for and understanding of their work. He shows how story touches listeners and readers, and presents a model of how to put together a story that teachers can use in writing their own pieces.

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Judith E. Glaser

Judith GlaserOur stories either build or break down relationships with others. At work, we interact with colleagues and hopefully create networks and build alliances. Every day in your business, there are a million interactions that will create either a positive or a negative dynamic among people. While these interactions may seem small, they begin to add up to a larger pattern. We are either spiralling up or down. We are either building a stronger sense of I or a stronger sense of WE...

 

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Michael Williams, PhD
ATH Editor of Theraputic Storytelling

Years ago, while working as a counsellor in Canada, I found myself struggling to help a young 14-year old girl in distress. She'd come into the therapeutic program having suffered years of sexual abuse. She was anorexic and suicidal. After months of counseling, I managed to establish a certain level of trust with her but increasingly I found myself at a loss as to how to help her out of her despair. My training seemed inadequate, unable to provide her with the answers for which she was desperate. How could I help her find some meaning in her life worth living for...

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Ted Kuntz

The people of the Hopi First Nations understood the power of stories. They had a strong oral tradition and used storytelling as the means to transfer wisdom from one generation to the next.

Carefully embedded within each story were the values, skills and knowledge the elders deemed necessary to navigate the challenges of life successfully...

 

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: This article was first published in Ted Kuntz's newsletter "Peace Begins With Me" (March 2013). We hope you enjoy it and will be inspired to read more about Ted's peace education work and interest in story.

 

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


“One lesson we can learn from pre-industrial peoples is the power of storytelling. I am struck by how important storytelling is among tribal peoples; it forms the basis of their educational systems. The Celtic peoples, for example, insisted that only the poets could be teachers. Why? I think it is because knowledge that is not passed through the heart is dangerous: it may lack wisdom; it may be a power trip; it may squelch life out of the learners. What if our educational systems were to insist that teachers be poets and storytellers and artists? What transformations would follow?”


~ Matthew Fox

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.

Something's wrong...
