If Problems Talked: Narrative Therapy in Action
This unique book explores how clients' problems are defined by personal and cultural narratives that can be identified and retold in therapy. The authors share their therapeutic vision through a series of stories, fictionalized discussions, and minidramas, inviting readers to participate in an ongoing conversation by reflecting on their own responses to the case material presented. Written in an engaging and personal style that brings the theory to life, the book challenges normative ideas about both narrative and the therapeutic relationship. This book will be of interest to family therapists both novice and experienced from a range of orientations, as well as students and other readers interested in a creative and accessible approach to psychotherapy.
