Our Heroic Adventure: Creating a Personal Mythology
Rubin, Lawrence C.
Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, v4 n3 p262-271 2009
Utilizing Joseph Campbell's concept of the hero's adventure, this article provides a technique through which clients can story their lives and challenges as an unfolding personal myth or epic adventure. The use of personal narrative and storytelling has found efficacy in the counseling field and, as such, forms a useful foundation for clinical intervention with a range of clinical dilemmas confronting clients in counseling.
