Using Stories in Elementary School Counseling: Brief, Narrative Techniques
Eppler, Christie; Olsen, Jacob A.; Hidano, Lory
Professional School Counseling, v12 n5 p387-391 Jun 2009
This article describes using stories and story-telling techniques so that elementary professional school counselors can facilitate brief, narrative counseling. These approaches help counselors and students build rapport while assisting in understanding and externalizing the problem. Additionally, these interventions may help generate ideas for unique and positive academic, personal/social, and career outcomes. This article will address four story-based techniques for use in elementary school counseling: biblionarrative, displaced communication, bibliocounseling, and using movie clips.
