In this issue, we bring to you two keynote addresses that were given earlier this year at the 10th International Narrative Therapy and Community Work Conference in Salvador, Brazil. These keynote addresses, by Jill Freeman and Marta Campillo, responded to the question ‘What are your favourite narrative therapy questions?’
The second section of this issue focuses on visual means to therapeutic ends. Lesley Grant and Rowena Usher describe how they are using the whiteboard as a co-therapist, and Milan Colic proposes extending outsider witness practices through the use of words and pictures.
The first paper in part three, ‘Resisting burnout with justice-doing’ by Vikki Reynolds critiques the individualism and neutrality of burnout and offers an approach for resisting burnout with collective sustainability and ‘justice-doing’.
Yuk King Lau then describes her work with a narrative oriented multiple-family group with students who refuse to attend school and their parents. This paper also describes the ways in which narrative practices have been adapted to enable resonance within a Chinese context.
The final section of this journal provides a keynote address recently offered at the International Spring Festival of Narrative Practice here in Adelaide. Within it, Mary Heath offers a range of ideas for enabling conversations about sex and sexuality. Barbara Baumgartner, a Canadian narrative practitioner has provided a reflection on this paper and a series of questions to practitioners to consider, write about, and discuss with a friend, partner, or in a supervision group.
