Narrative therapy is an exciting and evolving psychotherapeutic approach. Narrative Therapy Approaches for Physical Health Problems takes the reader on a journey across the territory of narrative therapy theories, principles, and practices, and its application to the field of physical health. It explicitly considers a person’s context and explores ways of intervening that go beyond the individual. This includes working with medical teams, engaging in conversations about broader narratives of health and wellness, alongside ideas for adapting practice to take account of particular settings and client groups. Although a lot of theoretical ground is covered, the overarching remit of this book is as a practical guide. The book is peppered with examples, which help explain concepts and illustrate how ideas look in practice.
Narrative Therapy Approaches for Physical Health Problems is a book for all professionals who are therapeutically supporting people with physical health problems, across the lifespan. It is intended for those that have an interest in understanding more about how to address the emotional needs of the people with whom they work.
