The stories also have the potential for nurturing positive values.

Therapeutic Storytelling includes suitable behavior stories for children aged 3 to 10 years old; how to use of healing stories for global and national challenging situations; how to develop storytelling skills using useful tips and anecdotes; as well as modern and traditional wisdom tales from around the world.
