Healing Stories for Challenging Behaviour brings together the fruits of Susan Perrow's work in storymaking, richly illustrated with lively anecdotes drawn from her own parenting and teaching. It offers: a discussion of therapeutic storytelling; guidance for readers on how to evaluate the challenging behaviour or situation and identify their desired resolution; advice on adapting stories for different age groups and cultures; an extensive collection of new stories; traditional folk tales categorised by behaviour or situation; and a storymaking model to help the reader create stories directly relevant to their own circumstances.
This book contains a comprehensive collection of therapeutic stories to help parents, carers, educators and therapists address challenging behaviour in young children plus a storymaking model to help readers wishing to create their own therapeutic stories.
