Are you seeking to:
- Join with young people who are experiencing ongoing despair and suffering?
- Find ways of honouring the injustices and oppression they may be experiencing as well as the skills and wisdoms they are using to respond?
If so, this book has been created with you in mind. In these pages, you will find hopeful and effective ideas and practices for re-authoring young people's lives. Also throughout is a determination to bring forth political considerations that situate lives in broader social and historical contexts.
Whether you are new to narrative therapy or whether you are seeking to extend your narrative skills, we hope the moving stories of practice included in these pages will provide you, and the young people with whom you work, hope and possibilities beyond despair.
