Narrative Therapy Trauma Manual: A Principle-Based Approach is the first published manual on narrative therapy. By focusing on seven key principles, the author strives to keep a close connection to the philosophy that supports narrative practice and to shed light on the multiple narrative practices that foster rich story development. The principles are guiding, not prescriptive, and honor the indigenous and particular cultural wisdom and local knowledge of the person seeking consultation with a therapist. Throughout, the author offers illustrations of how each principle can influence therapeutic conversations. Each principle is further linked to training guidelines in John Stillman’s book, Narrative Therapy Handbook: Moving Principles Into Practice (in press).
