PYJ4218 Healing Stories

Course Description

This course explores how stories and muyths powerfully influence our perceptions, desires, values, and behaviors.  Indeed, they shape our personal and social identities.  By becoming aware of the nature of stories and storytelling, we learn to deconstruct false and disempowering stories and to create truer and more empowering ones.  In this course we will examine powerful stories that not only portray the themes of healing and transformation but also have the power to heal and transform us.  As bibliotherapy reveals, when we study the stories of others' lives, we learn new ways of seeing, valuing, and acting in the world.  We will also share stories from our own lives and experiment with telling our life stories in new and more empowering ways.
