Susan Perrow is a story doctor. She writes, collects and documents stories that offer a therapeutic journey for the storyteller and listener – a positive, imaginative way of healing difficult situations.

Healing Stories for Challenging Behaviour brings together the fruits of Susan Perrow’s work in storymaking. It is richly illustrated with lively anecdotes drawn from parents and teachers who have discovered how the power of story can help resolve a range of common childhood behaviours and situations such as separation anxiety, bullying, sibling rivalry, nightmares and grieving. This comprehensive resource offers:

  • An overview of therapeutic storytelling
  • Checklists for readers to evaluate the challenging behaviour or situation and identify their desired resolution
  • Guidelines for adapting stories for different age groups and cultures
  • An extensive collection of new stories and traditional folk tales categorised by behaviour or situation
  • A storymaking model to help the reader create stories directly relevant to their own circumstances.

Susan Perrow has an extensive background in teaching, writing and therapeutic storytelling. She travels nationally and internationally giving keynotes and running seminars for teachers, parents and therapists.
