Course Description

Therapeutic storytelling is a powerful, yet  gentle and non-intrusive, way of inviting people to see their problems from a different perspective, package hard-to-hear feedback and ideas in a non-threatening  way that doesn’t trigger feedback, and help people break free from inertia and a sense of helplessness. It also adds a tremendous sense of freshness to the helper’s work because it helps them add more of their creativity and personality to their work.

The approach to therapeutic storytelling taught in this seminar is based on the work of Dr. Milton Erickson, who was renowned for his ability to use hypnosis, storytelling, and “curiosity-inducing homework assignments” to help clients find their own unique answers to their problems. His work was strengths-based long before the strengths-based movement and positive psychology had been born.

Instructor David Lee has studied with Dr. Erickson’s students, Stephen and Carol Lankton, most known for using his storytelling-focused approach.
