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.

Jessica Wilson's personal account tells of how storytelling has been applied in a medium-secure ward setting. It describes a little of what she has learned and experienced over the past two years at Llanarth Court Hospital, Partnerships in Care, South Wales.

 

 

 

 

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.

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


 

by Jonathan Young

 
Mythic stories make up a kind of collective dream that we all have together. If we want to understand our dreams, in many respects, we can look at these stories and study them...
 
 
 
 

 

by Jonathan Young

When the people of Hamelin refused to pay the Pied Piper what they had promised, he led the children of the village away with his magical music. This key moment in a familiar fairy tale carries many insights.

 

 

 


by Juliet Bruce

Story provides structure for safely expressing pain and negative beliefs that hamper development. Telling the story of difficult experience makes you its master rather than its victim...

 

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: In Part 1, Juliet Bruce talked about how reassessing our life stories can empower us. In “The Call To Adventure, Part 2”  she shares her thoughts on how story transforms life experiences. Through storytelling, she suggests, we are empowered to make the most of our lives.

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Juliet Bruce

We are born into this world as creatures of infinite possibility. From our first days, we connect dots of random experience that pour in through our senses. These connections become our foundational stories – templates of expectation about who we are and how our life will be...

 

 

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


“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

 

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


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.

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Lisa Bloom

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


by Diane Coucoulas Calleson, PhD

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...

 

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Norma-Jean Strickland,
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.
