Stories That Provide Hope and Comfort during Troubled Times
The power of narratives to touch sensibilities, influence lives, and heal wounded souls have been documented in the literature through the use of bibliotherapy (Kolencik & Bernadowski, 2007; Halsted, 2009). Literature, however, does not serve as a bitter pill or a chicken-soup remedy that can heal hurts away.
