Narrative therapy centers around a rich engagement in re-storying a client's narrative by re-considering, re-appreciating, and re-authoring the client's preferred lives and relationships. This second edition of Narrative Therapy includes advice for working with highly conflicted couple...

    Narrative Therapy in Wonderland: Connecting With Children's Imaginative Know-How

    by Marsten, Epston & Markham

    Recognizing the power of children’s imaginations in narrative therapy. Therapists may marvel at children's imaginative triumphs, but how often do they recognize such talents as vital to the therapy hour? Should therapists reserve a space for make-believe only when nothing is at stake, or might it be precisely those moments when something truly matters that imagination is most urgently needed? This book offers an alternative to therapeutic perspectives that treat children as vulnerable and helpless. It invites readers to consider how the imaginative gifts and knowledge of children, when supported by...

  • Narrative Therapy: The Social Construction of Preferred Realities

    Narrative Therapy: The Social Construction of Preferred Realities

    by J Freedman and G Combs

    This book describes the clinical application of the growing body of ideas and practices that has come to be known as narrative therapy. The primary focus is on the ways of working that have arisen among therapists who, inspired by the pioneering efforts of Michael White and David Epston, have organized their thinking around two metaphors: narrative and social construction. The authors are as concerned with attitude as with technique. Believing that a solid grounding in the worldview from which narrative practices spring is essential, they begin with an overview...
