Did you enjoy listening to fairy tales as a child? "Fairy tales help children deal with conflicts they are too young to articulate to the adults around them," states Bruno Bettelheim in Uses of Enchantment However, Stories As Medicine shows that fairy tales are not just for children. Each of the stories discussed in Stories As Medicine presents a challenging life situation and its resolution according to the particular tale. Themes such as low self esteem, belongingness, risk taking, and immaturity are examined. Of particular interest are the tales of personality integration: The Frog Prince for women and Beauty and the Beast for men. This entertaining and informative little book will surely provide food for thought long after the final page.
