Some useful narrative therapy practices for responding to people seeking psychological assistance — Chris Dolman


This paper was originally delivered as a webcast presentation in mid-February 2020 for psychologists, counsellors and others in China who had volunteered their time and skills to a free WeChat service that was established to respond to medical staff and community members who were seeking psychosocial assistance due to the effects of the coronavirus. It explores various narrative practices including establishing collaboration, developing double storied testimonies, responding to expressions of distress, and taking-it-back practices.
