Uncovering Treasures That Matter - A Therapist's Guide to Asking the Right Questions


Once upon a time . . . . Each of us has a zillion stories to tell. Dazzling stories, ordinary stories. So many stories and treasures that matter. We tell them over and over. We believe them to be our truth. But there may be more to the story-the moment of kindness in an otherwise awful breakup, the new life path discovered when all the doors closed. Take another look. Write the whole story. Tell more of your story than you noticed before. As therapists, we listen to and tell stories all day, every day. The gift of Uncovering Treasures That Matter is in its countless questions for any therapist, written by a forever psychologist. Give it to your clients, so they can imagine and consider while seeking, searching, and finding a choice-full life. Also, for the psychologically curious among us, choose and write using the prompting question that makes you noisy inside and takes you on an incredible inner journey.   Fifty themes with sensitizing questions and prompts to write about. These may be:    · The rules of your life, surely more than you thought;  · Living a big life or a small one;  · Birthdays, the real and the wished for;  · First and lasts - we usually know the first but not the last; · Treasures that matter, a person, an experience, a thing.    Notice, see, and remember who you were, are, and might be. Then, read your stories out loud to your therapist. Experience your story with kindred people. Be amazed by what you discover, what matters to you now.
