Bringing together an array of renowned, highly creative contributors, this indispensable book demonstrates how narrative and collaborative w ork with young people can bridge the gap between the seemingly dispara te worlds of adults and childrenand can foster unique and imaginativ e solutions to even the most challenging clinical problems. Through tr anscripts and compelling case examples, contributors illuminate how dr ama, art, play, and humor can effectively be used to engage children o f different ages and to honor their idiosyncratic language, knowledge, and perspectives. Chapters conclude with engaging question-and-answer sessions between the editors and the contributors that further draw o ut the principles and techniques of each approach.
"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
