Summary "Every life is an unfolding story and how individuals tell their story matters. Recent Stanford and Columbia University studies showed that how we view the story of our life shapes the life itself. Who are the heroes and villains? Where does the plot twist and how are conflicts resolved? Whether we are considering how a job was lost, a relationship clicked, or a dream deferred, we have the ability to empower ourselves or turn ourselves into hapless victims. Kim Schneiderman knows the power of story as both a therapist and a writer. Her clients often tell their stories in ways that keep them stuck but when they employ the storytelling techniques here, they view their lives as works in progress, become powerful narrators, and understand big picture storylines in ways that allow them to easily develop their own character, shape their actions and relationships, and create fulfilling "happy endings.""-- Provided by publisher.
"Writing exercises from a psychotherapist to empower readers to reframe their life story, including advice for reframing difficult experiences, letting go of victimizing stories, and creating positive ones"-- Provided by publisher.
