Fairy tale therapy as one of the methods of education
People encounter fairy tales from a very early age.
Psychologists and educators believe that it is fairytales that can help correct the child’s personality, help him socialize and solve some difficulties in education.
What questions will this therapy be useful for? There are many answers: revealing talents, correct understanding of situations, learning through examples, demonstrating right values, reducing aggressiveness, attracting attention, learning, working with fears, etc.
Fairy tale must be selected in accordance with what problem you want to work out. In the hero and the child, there must be only similarity, but not complete identity. The problematic should not be identical either.
When using this technique, it is important to remember the identity of the narrator: he must be expressive, artistic, have eye contact with the child and avoid prolonged pauses.
