Included in the text are eighty stories divided into different behaviour categories for easy reference - to work with directly, adapt or use as models for creating your own tales. Brief notes precede each story, with an age guide and suggestions for use. The categories cover many kinds of commonly identified challenging behaviour, from dishonesty through laziness to teasing and bullying; everyday situations like `tidy-up time'; experiences such as `moving house'; or problems and difficulties such as `separation anxiety', `fear and nightmares' and `illness and grieving'. The range of selected stories and ideas are suitable for ages three to eight.
If you feel inspired to write your own therapeutic tales, the text provides a story-making model - a threefold framework of `Metaphor', `Journey' and `Resolution' - to guide you.
Beside this framework, the book has chapters on age-appropriate stories, multicultural perspectives, props and presentation aids, and guidelines for the telling of stories. It is my hope, with some help from these sections, that you will feel encouraged to write and tell your own stories, and so perpetuate and develop age-old story traditions.
