Storytelling and metaphor has been a part of almost every significant approach to healing and psychology since the beginning of time. We often learn the most about ourselves, by looking through the window of story. Stories, parable, fable and metaphor can have a profound impact on client response and this workshop will teach you how to use storytelling effectively for therapeutic purposes.

Evidenced based protocols, like ACT Therapy, depend on metaphor for success. The ideas of Milton Erickson and his approach to metaphor have had enduring response. In this workshop you will learn the keys to using some of the most effective approaches to therapy by mastering the art of storytelling in therapy.

In this workshop you will learn:

  1. How storytelling can be integrated into both work with children and adults
  2. What stories produce specific responses
  3. Specific stories, metaphors, fable and parables you can integrate into your counseling
  4. How to use story to confront with empathy
  5. How to use story to motivate the unmotivated client
  6. How to use metaphor to make suggestive change even more effective

This workshop is for those working with adults, teens and children. It is appropriate for those who consider themselves to be master story tellers and those who struggle to use creative storytelling in therapy. You will get printed scripts for therapeutic purposes, and learn how to use these resources to help clients make lasting change..

Richard Nongard, LMFT and James Hazlerig, MA will facilitate this workshop. Both are master storytellers and experts in using motivational storytelling to facilitate change. James and Richard have collaborated on many textbooks in both counseling and clinical hypnosis, and you can expect this to be not only a practical workshop teaching you new skills, but one of the most interesting and most fun workshops you will ever attended.
