What could be more valuable than the information left to us by our ances-tors, passing it down from generation to generation. Before the advent of writing, it was passed from mouth to mouth from father to son, from teacher to student. But, this information, the instructions were invaluable because they contained a great life experience, tested through trial and error, their correction and transfor-mation into axioms of folk wisdom. Over time, folk wisdom began to spread around the world when the first travelers appeared. Their appearance in the village or town attracted the attention of residents. They gathered around the traveler and listened attentively to his sto-ries about the places he had visited; about the people he met; about events in which he participated or saw with his own eyes. Over the years, this information has turned into legends, epics, fairy tales, myths and more. It was reworked, re-thought, adapted to new realities and became part of our culture, psychology, mentality. But the opportunity to compare the information obtained, to draw certain conclusions, encouraged people to seek a good life, fair relations, well-being, pos-itive social interaction. Thus, the basis of our modern rules, laws, etiquette, etc., is the knowledge and experience of our ancestors, who help us in difficult circum-stances, act as advice in resolving any difficult situation, promote self-knowledge and self-development. Folk wisdom today we can consider as: a set of laws and rules; tips for every day; a measure of moral and spiritual values; the best solu-tion to a particular problem or a way out of a situation; criticism of modern soci-ety, its shortcomings, imperfections; ridiculing people for their greed, corruption; advice and recommendations for all occasions; rules for building interaction be-tween people. Recently, more and more professional psychologists and social ed-ucators are turning to folk wisdom. There are some areas in psychotherapeutic methods of working with clients, such as fairy tale therapy. But separately we would like to dwell on the parable-therapy. What is a parable? What is its differ-ence from other types of folk art? In what cases can we use parables in working with a client? What are their psychotherapeutic effects? We will answer these and other questions in this article. Its purpose is for psychologists to learn more about the possibilities of parable-therapy in working with different groups of cli-ents, to be convinced of its usefulness and expediency in psychological practice.
