Playful Approaches to Serious Problems
Narrative Therapy with Children and their Families
The "grown-up talk" of therapy is likely to turn off children -
especially if it focuses on their problematic behavior. The highly
effective techniques of narrative therapy include children by
respecting their unique language, stories, and views of the world.
This book describes a basic theory of collaborative narrative play, as well as verbal and nonverbal techniques that clear the way for stories of hope, possibility, and change. Compelling case examples, drawn from the authors' work, will appeal to parents and educators as well as therapists.
