Storytelling with Children in Crisis

by Molly Salans - £22.99  Jessica Kingsley Publishersq (2004)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781843107453 | ISBN 10: 1843107457

Molly Salans has been a storyteller for many years, visiting children in deprived areas who have depression, ADHD and behavioural problems caused by poverty, absent fathers, depressed mothers, run-down schools and violence. Describing her therapy sessions as they happened, Salans puts the children in the context of their lives and recounts her sessions, the folk and fairy stories she told, and the ones they developed themselves. In doing so, she shows how storytelling and listening, thinking about characters in the stories and talking about alternative endings inspires the imagination, compassion and way of thinking needed to cope with such emotionally difficult lives. This remarkable book includes over fifteen original children's drawings and reveals the methodology Molly uses to help heal these children and their families, making essential for all those involved in therapy and in storytelling.
