Books Beyond Words – Wordless Therapy Storybooks
 
Thinking in pictures
 
People who can’t read or who don’t like written words are often very good at reading pictures. That’s why there are no words in these picture stories.
These books all tell a story, but they also let the reader tell their own story – the one they see in the pictures. This can tell you a lot about a person’s inner world and their understanding of situations. There is plenty to talk about and each story explores feelings and relationships as well as giving information.
 
Glory is in her 30s and hasn’t had a job before. When she bumps into an old friend working in a clothes shop, she is inspired to set off on a path to a career of her own. Glory Wants a Job follows Glory’s journey from the earliest planning sessions, through vocational profiling and a working interview, to settled employment and the social, financial and well-being benefits it brings. This book, and the different situations it explores, can help someone think about starting a career, their own strengths and interests that could be part of a job, and what finding and being in work might be like for them.
This book is part of a mini series about moving towards work.
“It can make a difference to people, people that find it hard to read. People will be able to get hope that they can get a job. They can believe in themselves and get work. The story will show what people can do and that we all have more abilities than we realise and we just have to find out what they are.”
