Excellent Primer on Narrative Therapy July 6 2009
By M. Merrick - Published on
Format: Paperback
A wonderful introduction to this WONDERFUL approach.

This book is written simply and clearly, and provides the basic principles of Narrative work. I would suggest starting here and moving on to Michael White... but even if you choose not to read on, I'm sure you'll find yourself using these techniques in some way or another. At very least, you'll start to think differently about the ways in which we story our lives.

What Is Narrative Therapy? (Gecko 2000)
I was originally searching for a workbook on Narrative Therapy in the same format as "Mind Over Mood: Change How You Feel by Changing the Way You Think." Currently, there is no workbook on Narrative Therapy in print. Any aspiring Narrative Therapy authors, please write a workbook that could be used by the general public! If you are new to the subject of Narrative Therapy, buy this book first! Then search for the sources listed in this book to further your research.

Good content, but *WAY* overpriced Dec 26 2013
By Matt - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have a problem paying too much for textbooks, and this is no exception. This tiny volume (136 pages) is over $50?!?! Yes, you read that right. It probably cost about a buck to print independently. Worth $20? OK, maybe. $50? Hell no. I got a lot out of this book, so I did like it, but I greatly resent being made to spend so much on something that should be a lot cheaper. It's like buying a new Honda Accord for $150,000. A complete rip-off.

What is Narrative Therapy?: An easy to read Introduction June 2 2013
By Marta Rivera - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a great book if you are looking to work different.
the language is so easy, very clear, with great examples.
Is like a short version or a good example of all what narrative therapy means. It talks about how problems are different from people. It explains externalization conversations how different they are from internalizations.

This book shows us how important is the context of our society to create problems with the power imbalance in relations, how the context of gender, class, race, sexual preference, age, has an influence in the problem.

It invite us to understand that people are the authors of their on lives and we are co-authors as therapist.
It also explains how problems make people to see their life as thin and how are ways to thicken an alternative story that goes more with the persons preference way of living.

If you are in another way of working, lest say in a structural way of thinking and want to change to a post-structural way of thinking, you will like this book, just be patient because is different...a different way of seeing persons, problems and solutions or alternative stories as it is called.

Engaging Introduction July 5 2009
By Timothy M. Trautman - Published on
Format: Paperback
The book arrived well ahead of the beginning of class and I found it extremely useful for getting the overall picture of narrative therapy and its different dimensions.
