Practice to make a difference.

Narrative Therapy with Children and their Families

This long-awaited book brings together two popular authors - Michael White and Alice Morgan. Here they share stories from their counselling practice with children and their families and provide explanations of the thinking that shapes these conversations. Detailed explanations are provided of externalising practices, scaffolding conversations, ways of inviting significant others to act as an audience to consultations with children, and considerations relating to the position of the therapist. Moving and amusing stories of work with children and their families are also included and the following questions are considered: When there is conflict between parents and children, how can therapists create a context for collaboration? How can counsellors respond to children who have experienced significant trauma? When a therapy session with a child is going nowhere, what might be helpful to reflect upon? How can narrative practices shape child protection inquiries? If your work involves conversations with children, this easy-to-read and rigorous book, will prove to be a treasured companion
