This volume analyses and exemplifies the use of storytelling in three related fields of practice: education, counselling (especially narrative therapy) and research in the human sciences. For all of these fields, the use of storytelling is strongly related to what the Russian semiologist Mikhail M. Bakhtin called ‘becoming’: the on-going process through which an individual learns to relate to him- or herself- and to his or her surroundings. The chapters are written by researchers from a wide variety of disciplines, guaranteeing an inspiring inter-disciplinary and outlook on the use of storytelling. Reviewing a wide range of methods for using storytelling in academic and professional practices, it will be of value for scholars of applied narratology, researchers working in the human sciences, counsellors and educators, as well as those active in other fields of practice who wish to integrate storytelling in their own professional work.
