A Community of Ideas: Behind the Scenes


SKU: 975218018 Categories: , ,

From the back cover: ‘The last twenty years has seen the creation of a ‘community of ideas’ linked to narrative therapy and community work. We conceptualise our work at Dulwich Centre Publications as occurring within this ‘community.’ This book describes ways of linking practitioners and sharing ideas through the written word; ways of hosting conferences as community events; and ways of organising training courses for therapists that are congruent with narrative ideas. Most significantly, it contains stories of adventures from ‘behind the scenes’! This book will be relevant to anyone interested in narrative therapy ideas and especially to counsellors, therapists and community workers who wish to be linked with others in this work.’
