Pictorial Narratives represent an optimistic, nonpathologizing, holistic narrative meaning-making approach to counseling that involves client-produced/client-interpreted drawings of the problem and the preferred outcome.   As the counselor listens to the client’s interpretations of the drawn images, she or he becomes attuned to the client’s subjective meanings associated with the problem and communicate this attunement through empathic responding in a genuinely curious, non-expert stance.  The Pictorial Narrative process creates space within the therapeutic conversation to access, experience and reflect on emotionally salient meanings that accompany the problem and allow new meanings about self to emerge.    The Pictorial Narrative approach appears to  facilitate client reflection, personal agency, and therapeutic movement toward the preferred outcome.  The technique is user friendly and most clients and counselors find it to be relaxing and enjoyable.
