$9.90

This article provides an overview of narrative practices used with children who are dying and their families in a hospital palliative care setting. Narrative practices of subordinate storyline development, remembering conversations and definitional ceremony, living documents, and collective narrative practice, are used to allow children to ‘leave a legacy’, and for parents to ‘let the legacy live’. This piece also includes reflections on working in bilingual contexts, as well as some ethical considerations of working with children in oncology settings.
