Of Mice and Metaphors: Therapeutic Storytelling with Children

Synopsis

Storytelling comes naturally to children, and Jerrold Brandell makes it a reciprocal process when he re-visions their stories therapeutically and bounces them back as part of a dynamic storytelling "game". Getting down to cases early on, he models the engagement of a range of struggling youngsters and the reparative interpretation and reconstruction of their narratives. The result will enhance the repertoires of play therapists and child analysts alike.
