Re-engaging with history: The absent but implicit — Michael White


This highly influential paper by Michael White introduced the key therapeutic concept of engaging with ‘the absent but implicit’. It is the only paper that has been written on this topic. It was originally published in the book, ‘Reflections on narartive practice: Essays and interviews’. This piece includes description of ideas and stories of practice. It applies Derrida’s concepts of deconstruction in ways that open up new options for therapeutic practice.
