Originally embarking on a joint project to share clinical experience, members of the Family Systems Group of the Tavistock clinic found that what was common in their work was an emphasis on narrative. The writers collected here apply their observations about narrative to

bilingualism and therapy, the critique of narrative, illness and loss, gender and language, neonatal care, adoption, divorce and therapy with refugee families. Multiple Voices will prove to be the standard comprehensive work on narrative in the family therapy setting.

Hist. of systems group at clinic; client exp. of therapy, narrative applications, language/gender differences.
