Exercise Metaphors Built On Crosscultural Tales

This book would not have happened were I not a collector of tales from a variety of sources. I have already mentioned that when I travel a part of my goal is to collect local stories.

Build your own collection of stories that may be helpful for your clients. All cultures have told stories to educate their young, teach values, describe ways ofre-lating with others, and build the skills necessary for understanding and living life. Buy or borrow storybooks from different cultures, or sit with storytellers, to find the tales that are useful for your therapeutic work and the ones that are not. This may take sorting through a lot of stories, but it can be a very useful exercise.
