The Storytelling Therapy method I am helping

to develop, and am practising and teaching,

has 8 steps:

 

1) Tell one's "Life story" (perhaps a ten-minute version).

2) Listeners share similar experiences.

3) Identify turning points, outstanding motifs, and themes.

4) Gather "Associative stories" (using free association).

5) Add to and otherwise modify any of the above-mentioned stories.

6) Speak to and as characters in the stories.

7) Bring to mind metaphors for aspects of the stories.

8) Compose a "Healing story" (An Inspiring / Encouraging /

Guiding / Integrating / Transforming story.)

 

As part of

> 6) Speak to and as characters in the stories,

we would use the "Active Imagination" technique

that was first developed by Carl Jung,

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Active_imagination

 

The 8 steps in more detail are here.

 

This 8-step method is based on

Carl Jung's 3-step therapeutic approach.

them are optional) are at

The assignments are at

The readings and assignments would

not take much time.

 

There is only one written assignment

(to write down the Healing/Transforming

story one would have composed for oneself).
