Narrative means to therapeutic ends by Michael White( Book )

16 editions published between 1990 and 2017 in English and Japanese and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a respectful, often playful approach to serious problems, with groundbreaking theory as a backdrop. The authors start with the assumption that people experience problems when the stories of their lives, as they or others have invented them, do not sufficiently represent their lived experience. Therapy then becomes a process of storying or re-storying the lives and experiences of these people
Biting the hand that starves you : inspiring resistance to anorexia/bulimia by Richard Maisel( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Biting the Hand that Starves You draws to an unprecedented degree on the anti-anorexic/bulimic knowledge of insider clients/collaborators to provide fresh insights into the working of a/b and the means to overcome it.

Playful approaches to serious problems : narrative therapy with children and their families by Jennifer C Freeman( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The narrative therapy approach involves the whole family and especially children by respecting their unique language, problem-solving resources, and views of the world. The authors begin by elucidating a basic theory of collaborative narrative play that allows new choices and stories of hope and change to emerge. They encourage appreciation for ways of communicating that appeal to children, whether in the sandtray or with puppet "co-therapists," and respect for special and unusual abilities, such the ability to "read hearts" or connect with imaginary friends. Compelling case examples draw the reader into the book from the first pages. Children who might have been labeled belligerent, hyperactive, anxious, or out of touch with reality are found to be capable of taming their tempers, controlling frustration, facing fears, and using their imaginations to the fullest

Comprised of transcripted interviews and detailed meditations on practice, it demonstrates how bicultural partnership frameworks can augment mental health treatment by balancing local imperatives with sound and careful psychiatric care.
