The field of narrative-informed therapy began nearly a decade ago and has now matured to the point where a significant reference work is both timely and appropriate.This Handbook is the first to draw together theorists and practitioners representing a diverse range of approaches to describe and detail assessment and intervention strategies focusing on client story-telling and story reconstruction to promote positive change in clients. A primary goal is to bring together multiple approaches with the aim of promoting a dialogue among differing narrative traditions and synthesizing a more integrated understanding of client story-telling processes in psychotherapy. The editors have aimed for a balance between practice, applied research findings, and background theory. Features//Benefits: }an international "who's-who" cast of contributing authors highlights the various approaches and dimensions of narrative therapy by the people commanding the most authority and attention (e.g., Jerome Bruner, Michael White, Donald Polkinghorne, etc.). } therapy session examples and case materials demonstrate narrative interventions in action. } clear and consistent guidelines informed each chapter; these, along with an opening } preface and a closing chapter by the volume editors, provide unity and suggest connections between and among approaches.
