The Story Within is a creative arts therapies approach which uses myth and fairy tale to help clients work with difficult personal material. Clients begin by choosing their own myth or fairy tale character, and embark upon a guided journey with this character which will help them uncover and work with hidden, unconscious aspects of themselves.
This book outlines every part of the process, with step-by-step instructions for implementing it in practice. It gives detail of the theory behind the approach and provides guidelines for specific creative exercises to follow at each stage. It also includes clinical case vignettes and personal reflections from those who have experienced the process.
Whether you are a creative arts therapist looking to expand your practice or a health professional searching for a new, creative way of working with clients, The Story Within is for you.
