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.
 
Janet is desperate to make new friends and be close to other people, but she just doesn’t know how. When she approaches people in the park and tries to touch them, they are frightened. Janet feels devastated and lonely. With the help of her friend Monica, Janet learns about the right ways to make friends and how to behave safely with people she doesn’t know yet.
Friendships and relationships are important elements in everyone’s life. If someone doesn’t have experience of friendships or normal loving touch, making friends can be fraught with difficulty. Some people struggle with understanding even the basics of safe behaviour in public. This book can help people talk about safe ways to make friends, and to reflect on times when inappropriate behaviour may get them into trouble.
