The principles of Narrative School Counseling are demonstrated in this actual session that Gerald conducts with 14 year-old Lyneigh and her mother. After being home schooled in 8th grade. Lyneigh has decided to skip high school and attend Community College where she is achieving A grades. Her concern has to do with her social adjustment with schoolmates who are many years her senior. John Winslade participates as a reflector with Gerald and finally, Lyneigh and her mom respond to the reflections. This interview is a good demonstration of Narrative Counseling.
