Story Stones is a signature project from award winning author and educator Emily Neuburger, rooted in her educational book, Show Me a Story. Story Stones began in 2009, and since then, they’ve become a well known educational tool in schools and homes around the world. These stones, featuring captivating pictures decoupaged onto them, quickly become favorite objects for children (and adults too). They are the perfect foundation for developing elaborate characters and stories, and they can be used again and again to tell a diverse range of stories.
In this two part series we will learn about this approach, imagine new ways to utilize it, and create our own set of Story Stones around the theme of Passover.
All materials are included in the cost of this series.
About the Facilitator
Emily Neuberger has worked with children and families as a creative expression educator in both in high schools and elementary schools, and often as a visiting instructor.
In 2022, Emily graduated from UMASS Boston with her Masters in Science (MS) in Mental Health Counseling. She is now a psychotherapist who specializes in working with children and adolescents around challenges with anxiety, depression, ADHD, self-esteem, and relational issues.
In her work with children, Emily specializes in using play and art therapy as a means of helping children express and process feelings using symbol and metaphor. Her work is eclectic in that it is grounded in psychodynamic theory, and she also judiciously incorporates cognitive behavioral therapy, expressive arts therapy, and mindfulness practices. She is trained in a Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CF-CBT) approach using art, play, and storytelling to help children process grief and loss of all kinds.
Her Masters of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree from Smith College means that she brings an understanding of children’s wide ranges of educational experiences. She values collaborating and working with the parents and guardians of her clients.
