This practical handbook begins with the philosophy and psychology underpinning the therapeutic value of story telling. It shows how to use story telling as a therapeutic tool with children and how to make an effective response when a child tells a story to you. It is an essential accompaniment to the "Helping Children with Feelings" series and covers issues such as: Why story telling is such a good way of helping children with their feelings? What resources you may need in a story-telling session? How to construct your own therapeutic story for a child? What to do when children tell stories to you? Things to do and say when working with a child's story.
"Clear, concise and free from jargon. This book contains many sensitively placed and moving examples of children's own stories...this is a book that champions a child's right to have all their feelings fully acknowledged." — Sian Jones, Storylines
