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.
 
This book shows what happens to Ron when he loses interest in doing things because he is depressed. It also shows how he is helped to feel better. Like many other people he is offered counselling. An alternative story-line shows him taking antidepressant medication. Lots of people’s stories will fit this book. It will help if you or someone you know gets
depressed.
The story is told in pictures alone to allow for individual interpretation. If you are reading the book with a friend who has an intellectual disability, try encouraging them to tell the story in their own way. As well as the pictures, a sample story-line is included, with additional background information including organisations that can help.
– Some people will be able to follow the story without any help.
– Most people will be able to follow the story with some help from you.
 
You may want to give the person the whole book to look at or you could choose just a few pictures that you think will be particularly relevant. The book will give you the opportunity to provide as much support and reassurance as is needed by the person you are supporting and to answer their questions honestly.
