This course is a non-contact book study for Children’s Stories in Play Therapy by Ann Catanach. It is designed for those looking to increase their knowledge, skill, and application of using storytelling in play therapy. The book was written to help the reader understand the nature of a therapeutic relationship conducive to co-negotiating meaning in stories. The author draws heavily on her own experience as a play therapist who uses storytelling in play therapy and incorporates a lot of stories. She discusses storytelling as a container for children’s stories, experiences, and narratives. The author also explores the shape and power of stories.
Toward the end of the book, the author presents chapters on common themes that are present in stories. The author takes the reader through a journey of a wide variety of stories that evoke emotions in the reader. This is a rich experience for play therapists looking to explore painful feelings in stories with children so they can contain and heal their experiences.
