In this thoughtful and practice-based collection, popular authors and teachers Jill Freedman and Gene Combs introduce the reader to the complexities and possibilities of narrative therapy with couples. Five separate papers offer thorough explorations of theory and practice. Detailed examples of therapeutic work with heterosexual couples are provided. This book also includes a number of delightful chapters about narrative work with children, as well as a range of essays and exercises. For those working therapeutically with couples, families and/or children, this book is bound to become a trusted resource to turn to again and again when in need of reflection, clarification or new ideas.
