Narrative Practice

Continuing the Conversations

April 2011

Michael White (Author)


Final thoughts from the now-deceased leader of narrative therapy.

Michael White’s untimely death deprived therapists of a leading light. Here, available for the first time in book form, is a collection of the work he left behind—writings on topics dear to the psychotherapeutic world: turning points in therapy, conversations, resistance and therapist responsibility, couples therapy, and narrative responses to trauma.


"[F]lows with wisdom and clarity from beginning to end…Each chapter is full of gold nuggets and refreshing admonitions to clinicians. White’s humor, wisdom and heartfelt exhortations for professional clarity and judgment shine through…. Clinicians from every paradigm will learn, feel challenged and gain insight for Narrative Practice: Continuing the Conversations." — The National Psychologist

"[White] completely rearranged the theoretical and practice boundaries of family therapy.... The world has lost a gorgeous theoretical thinker and therapist. It’s now up to each and every one of us within narrative therapy circles and beyond to carry his ideas forward." — Stephen Madigan, PhD, Yaletown Family Therapy

"Hearing Michael ‘speak again’ through these pages was a real thrill!  David Denborough, Cheryl, and David Epston have fulfilled a major ‘labor of love’ in drawing out some marvelous gems from Michael’s unpublished works. Through their efforts, Michael extends his contributions to narrative theory and practice.... An enlivening read!" — Karl Tomm, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Faculty of Medicine at the University of Calgary
