A comprehensive collection of hundreds of thought-provoking stories and activities for use in the treatment of children confronting difficult situations

Storytelling and Other Activities for Children in Therapy provides professionals with the knowledge, insight, and tools to help children (ages 6 to 12) and their families work through their treatment issues using storytelling and other activities. This invaluable guide includes helpful activity sheets that gradually progress through four levels of inquiry, representing readiness for self-disclosure.

Imaginative and easy-to-use, the stories and activities in this book are tied to relevant practice issues, including:

  • Illness and disability

  • School issues

  • Anger and behavioral issues

  • Social adjustment and shyness

  • Divorce and parental separation

  • Domestic violence

  • Community violence

  • Trauma and child abuse

  • Substance abuse

  • Death

With an accompanying website allowing therapists to personalize and print stories as well as activity sheets to meet their needs and those of their clients, Storytelling and Other Activities for Children in Therapy is an important tool in easing the pain of emotionally hurt children towards a discovery of their inner strengths and resilience for life.
