Fairytale Metaphor as a Means for Mutual Understanding 2367

Vachkov I.V.
Doctor of Psychology, Professor, Social Pedagogy and Psychology Department, Moscow State Pedagogical University, Moscow, Russia

The article attempts to generalize defining social and psychological features of fairy tale therapy, to reveal preconditions of its development and evaluate its role and functions in a psychologist's activity. The author argues that fairy tale therapy is a method in applied psychology that is aimed at support of development of a person's subjectivity and agency that ensures his / her efficient interactions with the social world. The article describes that position as the basis for integrative fairy tale therapy — the author's approach.

Keywords: fairytale, metaphor, fairy tale therapy, semantic space, subjectivity.

Column: Applied Research and Practice
