Description : Improve your overall wellbeing through the healing power of writing and storytelling with these inspiring true stories to help you see your illness—and yourself—in new and positive ways. Navigating illness can be both frightening and isolating. When a serious illness strikes you or a loved one, your whole world is turned upside down, leaving you feeling disoriented, angry, or depressed. But there is a way to take charge of your life and achieve better health and wellbeing—and that is through the art of storytelling. Social science and emerging neurobiological research reveal that storytelling helps us heal, cope, and communicate, lifting our mood and regaining control of our life’s narrative. With practical, science-backed guidance and compelling, relatable human stories, The Healing Power of Story offers you an opportunity to improve your health and also deepen human connections that serve as the foundation of healing through engaging with and telling your story. At a time when the country is gripped by an epidemic of loneliness, bringing individuals, families, and communities together to share stories can help you not only rebuild your shattered identity but also bring welcome joy to others.

Description : Poetry and short stories can act as powerful springboards to growth, self-enhancement and healing. With the guidance of a skilled facilitator, participants can engage with their own creative expression, and with that of others, and in doing so find opportunities to voice their truth, affirm their strengths, and find new ways of coping with challenges. This book explores the therapeutic possibilities of poetry and stories in turn, describing how to select appropriate works for discussion, and providing techniques for facilitating personally-relevent and growth-enhancing sessions. The author provides ideas and suggestions for personal writing activities that emerge from or intertwine with this discussion, and explains how participants can create their own poetic and narrative pieces using non-literary stimuli, such as music, photographs, paintings, objects, and physical movement. A useful appendix contains titles of individual poems, stories, and literary anthologies that the author has found particularly beneficial in her work, as well as useful further resources and contact details for readers who would like to train to be registered or certified poetry therapists or facilitators. Combining theory with innovative ideas for practical, experiential exercises, this book is a valuable tool for creative arts therapy students and practitioners, mental health and medical professionals, and anyone else interested in the healing possibilities of creative expression.

Description : Ten animals – nine non-human and one human – take you on ten journeys, where, in each case, an animal in need of rescue overcomes their issues and goes on to help people overcome theirs. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Arial} Dale Preece-Kelly, an Animal Assisted Therapy Practitioner, details his own very personal experiences – and how he was rescued by his animals – describing how the creatures he has rescued have become first class therapy animals. Featuring a unique range of species, some never previously used in a therapeutic environment, this book demonstrates how each species brings its own benefits to a therapy session. With a foreword from respected Animal Geographer Dr Daniel Allen, who has long supported Dale’s work, the book also gives advice on how to select and ‘train’ a therapy animal, what the benefits are of working with different animals, and how the benefits of each species differ. This book provides a unique and fascinating insight into the field of animal-assisted therapy.

Experience the remarkable stories of pain and grief that have been transformed to celebrations of joy in Christ. Your spirit will be renewed by the faith of people in devastating situations that should rob them of happiness and comfort, but instead bring strength and courage to their lives. Travel the twisted road of grief with people who have experienced the suffering that life can bring, and have discovered the path of healing.

Journey from Heartache to Hope illustrates what is possible when people learn to rely on God to provide them with the arms of comfort. He is the safe place for us to mourn, grow, and live our lives in peace. Share in the journey of unbearable pain, and you will be amazed at the glory of God. You will be given the details usually reserved for the ears of the counselors who guide individuals through the complex tragedies that life can bring. Feel the changes of the spirit and rejoice in the healing that only the Lord can provide. Join us on the journey from heartache to hope.
