Reflections on Narrative Practice: Essays & Interviews


In this thoughtful collection of interviews and essays, Michael White extends upon his explorations of the narrative metaphor in therapy. Thorough explorations of the thinking that informs narrative practice are interwoven with stories of therapeutic conversations shared. For those readers who are already engaged with narrative therapy, this collection will provide further food for thought.

  • How does narrative therapy fit within the broader traditions of family therapy?
  • How can therapists assist people to meaningfully re-engage with the histories of their lives?
  • What ethical considerations inform narrative conversations?
  • What have been the contributions of children to these ways of working?
  • What are some of the ways in which notions of spirituality can be explored within narrative practice?

These are just a sample of the many explorations to be found within this collection.
