'This book looks at the benefits to children of listening to fairy tales, a selection of which are provided, and creating their own. I found Storytelling with Children in Crisis thought provoking and I am glad I was able to put into practice some of its ideas.' - Counselling Children and Young People Journal 'Describing home-based therapeutic work in real-life chaotic families, this book has relevance to anyone working with children and families. What is most helpful is the author's readiness to discuss her own doubts and vulnerabilities.' - Community Care Molly Salans has been a storyteller for many years, visiting children in deprived areas who have depression, ADHD and behavioral problems caused by poverty, absent fathers, depressed mothers, run-down schools and violence. Describing her therapy sessions as they happened, Molly Salans puts the children in the context of their lives and recounts her sessions, the folk and fairy stories she told and the ones they developed themselves. In doing so, she shows how storytelling and listening, thinking about characters in the stories and talking about alternative endings inspires the imagination, compassion and way of thinking needed to cope with such emotionally difficult lives. This remarkable book includes over fifteen original children's drawings and reveals the methodology Molly uses to help heal these children and their families, making it essential for all those involved in therapy and in storytelling.

This practical book will improve the play skills - through storytelling and storywork - of anyone working with children, especially with children 'at risk', such as looked-after children, or children suffering from trauma or abuse. Strongly rooted in the story tradition - folk tales and fairy tales, myths and legends, the ancient tale as well as the child's own story - this book enables the play worker to create a safe structure in order for children to play and through playing, share stories through movement, painting, clay, sandplay or drama. A narrative approach is an effective means of enabling children to communicate their experiences, fears, hopes and dreams. This book includes guidelines on all the play techniques and advice on unexpected disclosure or extreme reaction. Above all, this book puts the playing back into storywork, whereby the children are able to discover their own strengths and creative skills; to improve their forming of secure attachments with adults; and, to begin to understand their own behaviours and swings of mood and to understand the importance of communication in social skills. For one reason or another, many children in difficulty are excluded: from their school, their family, their social or cultural group. The methods in this book develop a framework of inclusion that brings some joy into the process of storytelling and integrates it as a social and cultural form for the benefit of children who are at risk.

The aim of this Master's Thesis is to identify how children can develop different language-learning skills through storytelling with the help of traditional Slovenian folk tales, furthermore, to provide teachers of English with ideas and materials based on these stories. The first part provides the reader with a detailed theoretical background on teaching foreign languages through stories, especially folk tales, and on developing different language-learning skills. Folk tales are especially important because of their enormous cultural impact. The second part consists of different activities that can be used with stories and of thorough explanation of the skills these activities help children to develop. The variety of activities covers vocabulary, grammar, listening and speaking skills, and reading and writing skills. The last part of this study consists of ready-to-use flashcards and worksheets that teachers can distribute to the children. This thesis illustrates the importance of using stories in the classroom when it comes to teaching foreign languages and the skills that folk tales and activities based on them help to develop.
