“Heroes and Mentors: A Consideration of Relational-Cultural Theory and “The Hero’s Journey””
By Derek L. Robertson and Christopher Lawrence
Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, Volume 10, 2015 – Issue 3

“Derived from mythology around the world and over the ages, Campbell’s “The Hero’s Journey” provides a conceptual roadmap for confronting life’s challenges. The way in which clients navigate these challenges may also have a profound effect on their relational development. This article examines The Hero’s Journey through the lens of relational-cultural theory and illustrates ways in which counselors can aid clients in making sense of the struggles they face on their own personal journeys.”

The Student’s Journey Can Be Seen as a Hero’s Journey

The Power of Self-Reflection: Traveling the Hero’s Journey
A paper delivered at the 40th International conference on Improving University Teaching, Ljubljana, Slovenia
by Julie Wilans, Central Queensland University

“A simple, self-reflective tool that has been used very effectively for well over a decade in a regional Australian pre-university preparatory program (STEPS ) is the use of the metaphor of the Hero’s Journey (Vogler, 2007).
        The Hero’s Journey is a self-reflective tool that can be utilised with students as a way to ‘normalise’ the range of emotions experienced during their formal learning journey. It provides a framework that can help students make sense of personal transformation.
        Because of its universality and timeless wisdom, mythic structure has been found to be an empowering tool for developing in adult learners the reality that change and difficulty can be a transformative force in their lives. In positioning the students as the hero/heroine of their own adventure, they are enlightened with the notion that they each hold the key to unlocking their own potential.The journey of the adult learner shares a number of parallels with the hero/heroine in storytelling. It involves a call to leave the ordinary world, to experience degrees of self-doubt and fear, to experience challenge and reward and to discover inner strength. At the outset of STEPS, and throughout the duration of the program, the Hero’s Journey stages are offered to the students as a means of making sense of personal challenge and change.”
