• explaining things with stories
• disorder-specific metaphors
• for direct and varied use
Therapeutic stories are a critical tool in child and adolescent psychotherapy – stories or metaphors allow disorder models and interventions to be communicated in a way which suits the age of the patient. This compilation contains metaphors that can be used directly, but which can also be customized or developed further. The basis for it all is the cognitive behavioral therapy model. The stories are aimed at children in primary school and they are arranged according to the children's specific needs. There are instructions on how each story is to be used and what the focus and the goal of using the story is.
