Synopsis

Adventure Tales A Framework for Therapeutic Story Creation by and for Children by Barr Kazer

Almost all troubled children thrive in storytelling. However experience has shown that children with Aspergers' or autistic tendencies neither enjoy nor benefit from storytelling, they need a different approach; also children in crisis are better helped in one to one counselling. The Adventure Tales Resource is a practical guide to providing a weekly therapeutic storytelling group for troubled children aged 7-12 years, through one school term. The Guide provides a succinct, step by step method of setting up, organizing and running a storytelling group. It facilitates the production of the finished story for the group. It offers ways of how to be therapeutically with the group. It includes practical administration support with photocopiable proforma such as letters to parents, evaluation sheets. This practical resource will help to: develop inter and intra relationships; enhance emotional literacy; resolve emotional issues; improve ability to think round own problems; improve tolerance of difference; increase trust in others; stimulate the imagination; increase self esteem; increase the ability to express views clearly and calmly; increase confidence in literacy skills, especially reading.

About the Author

Barr Kazer is a BACP Accredited Counsellor working as a school counsellor for the last fourteen years. After her original degree in 1967 she had trained as a primary school teacher and taught in primary schools, mostly in areas of social need, during the next thirty years. Her teaching years were interspersed with bringing up her own children and doing a City and Guilds 'Dress and Design' which she says released her inner creativity. Deciding she wanted to make a difference to the emotional needs of children, Barr retrained as a counsellor, funding her training by creating a literacy programme for three years for BBC Schools. From 2001 she worked as a school counsellor, setting up the counselling service, in a Middle school and a Secondary school. Since 2004, inspired by reading about Gill Morton's concept of Therapeutic Story Telling, she has also run weekly Adventure Tales sessions at her Middle School and in a variety of primary schools and a special school for The Open Toy Box charity. Semi-retired in 2015 Barr continues to run a weekly Adventure Tales group.
