An Introduction To Working With Storybooks Therapeutically And Creatively
This resource has been designed to support practitioners and caregivers with practical and creative ideas on how to use illustrated storybooks therapeutically with children. Whilst this book is also available to purchase as part of a set, with three therapeutic fairy tales, all the content, worksheets and activities can be used with any illustrated story.
Exercises have been created to encourage imagination and free play, develop confidence and emotional literacy as well as deepen engagement and understanding of stories. It is a book that can be returned to again and again to inspire creative engagement with stories with individuals or groups.
Key features include:
- An exploration of the importance of stories to modern life, and their use as a creative and therapeutic tool
- Guidance for working with stories and their illustrations, including conversation starters, prompts and worksheets for process-orientated creative activities
- Accompanying online activities designed for specific use with the storybooks in the Therapeutic Fairy Tales series
This is an invaluable resource for all professionals looking to work therapeutically with stories and images. It will be particularly valuable to those working in child and family mental and emotional health, social and youth care, community and participatory arts, school and education, and specialised health and hospital environments.
