Storytelling training offers the integrated use of narrative activity, play and cognitive and behavioral interventions that are evolutionarily adequate in order to transmit to the professionals of the sector a vehicle to face the problems of the child in a non-threatening way, providing him with the opportunity to develop more adaptive coping skills and restore a sense of mastery of the world.
