"The utility of this volume's conservative social constructionist praxis is undeniable. . . . Narrative Therapy in Practice nevertheless provides scholarly and lucidly assembled contributions that significantly broaden the scope of narrative praxis, and for this reason it is recommended reading." (Contemporary Psychology)
". . . recommend Narrative Therapy in Practice . . . to professionals and therapists in training who are interested in learning the theory and the practice of narrative work." (American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy)

"This book is a testimony to the spirit of a community of therapists in New Zealand who set about supporting each other in explorations of the practice, ethics and politics of what has come to be known as "Narrative Therapy." But more than this, it constitutes a powerful invitation to us all to follow suit, to join with others in the generation of new options for action in this work. Inspired reading." (Michael White, Dulwich Centre, Adelaide, Australia)

"A wonderful book! Readable and lucid, it clarifies narrative therapy and its specifics for both the beginner and advanced practitioner—and it is also theoretically powerful. I liked the scholarship, the energy, the practicality, and the awareness of complex multicultural issues." (Allen E. Ivey, distinguished university professor, school and counseling psychology program, University of Massachusetts)

"In this clearly written book, the focus is not on `experts' solving problems, it is on people becoming `consultants to themselves', and dissolving their problems by discovering in dialogue, the new and better, but previously unrecognized possibilities they already contain within themselves. An important and useful book indeed." (John Shotter, professor of interpersonal relations, Department of Communication, University of New Hampshire)
