The stories promote hope and empowerment and assist the reader/listener to process and reconcile their past experiences and ongoing difficulties in transition.

  • Therapeutic Storytelling
  • The Therapeutic Strategy in Jungle Tracks
  • The Road Ahead – Outcomes and Integrating Therapeutic Approaches
