Why Therapeutic Storytelling?
Stories and songs have entertained and evoked responses from audiences since the beginning of time. Humans' right brains are wired to receive and respond to both language and music. These days, attention spans are shorter and more demanding, more sophisticated, and yet less able to independently imagine or visualize. As we age the left side of the brain – its logical watchdog – tends to dominate our behavior and reasoning powers. This is especially true for residents of long term care facilities, who without regular speech, physical or other therapies can become rigid, removed and often fall victim to self-despair. They require even more visual and aural stimulation. Music provides "memory triggers" and when combined with the use of stories, metaphors, fables, and myths, these techniques give the listener the chance to distance themselves from his or her own real life encounters, reframe and offer fresh perspectives on familiar human problems. Put another way, the use of Therapeutic Storytelling and Music become the keys to unlocking a storehouse of ideas, affective emotions and memories, made accessible by engaging the power of the right brain.

Therapeutic Storytelling maximizes engagement when done in a relaxed atmosphere free of distractions.
