Alan Parry, PhD and Robert E. Doan, PhD Each of us has a story to tell that is uniquely personal and profoundly meaningful. The goal of the modern therapist is to help clients probe deeply enough to find their own voice, describe their experiences, and create a narrative in which a life story takes shape and makes sense. Emphasizing the vital connections among personal experience, family, and community, the authors of this provocative new book explore the role of narrative therapy within the context of a postmodern culture. They employ the interactional dynamics of family therapy to demonstrate how to help people deconstruct oppressive and debilitating perspectives, replace them with liberating and legitimizing stories, and develop a framework of meaning and direction for more intentional, more fulfilling lives. Blending scientific theory with literary aesthetics, Story Re-Visions presents a comprehensive collection of specific narrative therapy techniques, inventions, interviewing guidelines, and therapeutic questions. Audience: Accessibly written and profoundly enlightening, this book is ideal for family therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and anyone else interested in doing therapy from a narrative stance. Classroom Use: Supplemental reading for courses in family therapy and other psychotherapeutic disciplines. CONTENTS: 1. The Postmodern Context 2. Doing Narrative Therapy in a Destoried World 3. Helping People Become Authors of their Own Stories 4. The Therapist and Reflecting Team as Re-Visionary Editors 5. Keeping the Story Re-Vision Alive, Well, and in Charge 6. The Re-Vision of Therapists' Stories in Training and Supervision Reviews This book provides the reader with an excursion through the fascinating territory of the narrative metaphor, and visits many of the sparkling developments in the therapeutic practices that are informed by this metaphor.... There is something for everyb ody here. Quite some achievement!' --- Michael White, BASW, Dulwich Centre, Adelaide 'The book is full of ideas and interventions that one can use in a variety of clinical situations.
