international_jounal_2012 Welcome to the first on-line issue of the International Journal of Narrative Therapy and Community Work. This special issue features a number of papers which break new ground in relation to:

— Narrative practice with survivors of torture and trauma
— Narrative therapy and mental health (with those experiencing paranoia)
— Home-based narrative therapy

The issue also includes keynote addresses from Marta Campillo (Mexico) and Stephen Madigan (Canada) that were delivered in Brazil at the 10th International Narrative Therapy and Community Work Conference; and a detailed paper, by David Denborough, that traces the intellectual and relational histories of narrative therapy and collective practice.

It is a journal issue that we believe will be relevant to practitioners and scholars. We’re really pleased that this first on-line edition contains papers from Colombia, Australia, Mexico, Canada and the USA.
