Reviews

"This wide-ranging book features postmodern ideas and innovative interviewing methods....The working contexts range from schools, playrooms, offices, and clinics to family homes and group homes. The book is simply full of creative variations in narrative practice! But other methods like the use of drama, art, home support, and the collaborative language systems approach are also included. A gratifying theme throughout is the consistent commitment to honoring and respecting the actual experiences of the young people with whom we work." --Karl Tomm, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, University of Calgary
"In this book readers will find many wonderfully creative expressions of collaborative/narrative approaches to problems experienced in childhood and adolescence. The chapters are framed by a thoughtful and informative introduction that addresses many of the questions that are often asked about the tradition of thought and practice that informs these collaborative/narrative approaches. There is something for everyone in this book." --Michael White, BASW, Dulwich Centre, Adelaide, South Australia

"Smith and Nylund have compiled a collection of hopeful, exciting approaches to working with children that is as diverse as the problems that children and their families bring to therapy. Each chapter is unique, but the approaches are joined together by the spirit of possibility, respect, and collaboration that suffuses them all." --Bill O'Hanlon, MS
