Good book for academics and non-professionals, alike.,
This review is from: Using Story Telling as a Therapeutic Tool with Children (Helping Children) (Helping Children with Feelings) (Paperback)
This book gives a invaluable understanding as to how to help children through storytelling with their feelings and issues. It provides an understanding as to how a child's imagery and thinking may differ to an adult's. It is broken down into three chapters. 1.Why Storytelling is a good therapeutic tool for children, 2. How to use storytelling..., 3. How to effectively respond to a child's story.
I believe this is the book to start with. This book is under 100 pages of information that has had a profound impact on me. I recommend it as part the tool kit for any one who works with children, up to about age 14.
