Within the context of a book, a client might find that character who approaches a crisis in a way they admire. Stories can give us a chance to see how things might turn out differently. Reading allows us to try on alternative lifestyles and see if they might fit. They might also read about thoughts or feelings that they have but find it impossible to express. Novels show us our own and others reality and may be useful as dialogue in psychotherapy.
