The custom of telling children fairy tales has its beginnings in the distant past. The fairy tale for children, as well as many other discoveries and experiences accumulated by mankind since the dawn of time, belongs to the treasury of natural "therapeutic agents". - Maria Molicka, a psychologist who has been working with children for years and investigating the nooks and crannies of the child's psyche, has drawn attention to this feature of the fairy tale.
Children often cannot talk about their problems and fears. They do not understand their feelings and reactions, so they cannot ask for help to explain them. It is us adults who, by observing a child, playing or talking to him or her, can find out what frightens or triggers uncertainty. The method of contact with a child by means of a therapeutic fairy tale allows - by presenting an imaginary world in which difficult situations find their solution - to give the child support and a sense of security.
In the second part of Therapeutic Fairy Tales the author touches upon the problems of adoption, divorce of parents, lack of self-confidence, visits to the dentist, motor hyperactivity, fear of pain, death of a beloved animal, fear of ghosts, as well as physical, mental and sexual violence.
Therapeutic fairy tales by Maria Molicka aroused interest among publishers in Germany and Hungary; these books will soon be published in both countries. The method of the Polish psychologist is becoming more and more popular in Europe (Molicka is invited to read by European Universities), where she returns to the natural methods of dealing with problems.
Therapeutic fairy tales part 2 were awarded by the Polish National Discussion Forum: Children's Book - Education - Upbringing, organized under the patronage of the Minister of Culture.
