Lesson Overview

Metaphors - Therapeutic Storytelling

Storytelling has been around since the dawn of time. Stories are meant to inform, entertain, and heal. Therapeutic Storytelling is a method that uses metaphors and imagery to affect and alter our views about ourselves and the world. With this course, you will learn and understand how to help your clients heal and grow with the power of stories.

Telling engaging stories is one of the simplest and powerful ways to effective healing. Milton Erickson, one of the greatest hypnotists, elicited hypnotic responses in his clients and/or directed their thinking by telling them a story.

A story can break down our psychological walls. They take us away from our analytical and reasonable minds and ignite our imagination. Therapeutic Storytelling can easily put someone in a hypnotic state. Just think of the bedtime stories you heard as a kid to help you sleep. They were comforting, and allowed your imagination to burst out.

This is because it is easier to understand and overcome our difficulties if we transpose them into another situation. During therapeutic storytelling, the client may step into a relaxation state (or may experience focused attention that creates a light trance). In this special state, the client starts creating his own personal association with the story and develop a special meaning. He/ She may also be able to access some memories from the past (from other experiences that create multi-sensory experience such as smells, pictures, scenes, colors, or feelings that could relate to the story. While the storytelling process goes on, other experiential learning also takes place, of which the client is unaware.

Metaphors can be delivered while the client is awake, in the form of anecdotes, stories and waking visualizations, or when the client is trance in the form of fantasy or action metaphors. Metaphor therapy does not always require a formal induction: many clients go into trance spontaneously during the telling.

Milton Erickson wasn’t the only one who used therapeutic storytelling in history, Aesop’s fables, the parables of Jesus, and Greek myths, are also examples. These stories can teach and direct people with their implicit, indirect suggestions. In Erickson’s special approach, the practitioner can put anything at hand in context in order to become a part of client’s solution making process. He was known for modeling the use of the paradoxical, the immediate environment, the surprising, the fun and the trivial. These are some of the things you’ll learn in Erickson’s approach to therapeutic storytelling.

Learn to use stories to promote healing and change. The more practice you have, the more refined and natural your storytelling abilities will be.

Top 100 Adventures Review - hypnosis Online - hypnosis VideosMembers of The Top 100 Adventures attended Bennett | Stellar University’s training course.

The Top 100 evaluators rated their experience among the “Top 10 Adventures” and published the following article:

Learn Where the Masters Learn. . . Bennett | Stellar University!

We at Top 100 Adventures have invested years participating in personal development seminars with the ‘masters of human experience’ like Peter Lowe, Zig Ziglar, Les Brown, Brian Tracy, Jimmy “Z”, and Tony Robbins.

Although the ‘gurus’ did not make our Top 100 Adventures list, they did offer us some clues on how to really achieve extraordinary lives.

The clue was that they all seemed to be living exceptionally. So who trained them? They didn’t get to be so successful by attending their own seminars, right?

The answer is Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). Many of the ‘gurus’ in human development are trained in the techniques of NLP. Top 100 Adventures recognized NLP is the real personal development tool. Most motivators use NLP, but they don’t teach NLP. Bennett | Stellar University teaches NLP.

At first, we were intimidated to train under our mentor’s mentor, but we at Top 100 Adventures found Bennett | Stellar University to be chocked full of digestible teachings and magical experiences that continue creating adventures in our lives years after becoming Bennett | Stellar certified.

-John Chmela, Top 100 Adventures
