Description

Feminist ideas were central to the development of what has become known as narrative therapy and community work. Now, 30 years on, feminist ideas and activism are once again shaping the future directions of narrative practice. Through engaging with new insights and challenges offered by gender diversity and intersectionality, the practitioners whose work is brought together in this collection bring fresh rigour and vision to narrative therapy and community work.

In this book you will find detailed and diverse examples of practices that linger at the intersections of gender, race and privilege:

  • disrupting binaries in work with incarcerated women who have both used and been subjected to violence
  • inviting difficult and necessary conversations about racism and white privilege in counselling practice
  • addressing issues of power, privilege and accountability in bringing together people who have caused death or serious harm with their ‘victims’, including bereaved loved ones.

This book is for anyone seeking to develop their counselling or community work practice in ways that go beyond individual healing to seek cultural change and justice.
