The book is intended to assist people in the healing professions to utilise storytelling, pictures and metaphor as interventions to help their patients. By communicating in parallel worlds and using simple images and solutions, not only can positive attitudes be implanted but also nurtured and enhanced to literally work wonders. Trainers, psychotherapists or professionals in the field of management are given information to inspire people to make subtle behavioural changes that positively improve lives and plant seeds in the subconscious that can effectively help people heal themselves. The book has several sections to help the reader find what he or she needs. An introduction about stories and their usage, using the world of dreams and trance states and indicating different ways of communicating, understanding and meaning. The first main section includes stories with specific therapeutic applications linked to symptoms and situations. The second main section explains and investigates methods and gives a myriad of tools including trance inductions, adaptation hints, reframing, use of metaphor and intervention techniques, how stories can be structured and how to invent your own. Finally a elaborate reference section with key words cross-referenced will help you find the story or tool you need.
