Using an Adlerian play therapy lens for thinking about therapeutic metaphors and storytelling, in this class, Terry Kottman, founder of Adlerian play therapy and master storyteller, will help you gain a sense of competence and confidence in being able to design and deliver therapeutic metaphors. She will teach you how to create settings and characters for your therapeutic metaphors, how to set up your story arc, how to be intentional with the teaching contained in the story, and how to use basic storytelling skills to deliver the story. You will learn and practice basic metaphor creation, mutual storytelling, co-telling a story, and Creative Characters with your classmates and develop at least one story for taking back to your play therapy practice and telling to one of your current play therapy clients.
