Along with offering comfort and reassurance, narratives hold the promise of making a client's situation a shared experience. Stories can also suggest new opportunities for therapists and break through their own impasses. Slonim-Nevo (social work, Ben Gurion U. of Negev) and Lander (social work, Sapir Academic College) apply their experience and research to a series of therapeutic stories practitioners can use to develop a better understanding of life events, including loneliness, depression amongst young adults, facing catastrophe, considering suicide, social and school phobias, self-destructive behavior, suicide of one's parents, spiritual re-evaluation, social rejection in childhood, obesity, parental death through terrorism, eating disorders, trauma related to the Holocaust, illness and death in the elderly, terminal illness, immigration, and conflict between mother and daughter. This also serves those who help people to seek therapy as a guide to therapeutic processes and principles. Distributed in the US by ISBS
