"This book presents a respectful, often playful approach to serious problems, with ground-breaking theory as a backdrop.
The authors start with the assumption that people experience problems when the stories of their lives, as they or others have invented them, do not sufficiently represent their lived experience. Therapy then becomes a process of storying or re-storying the lives and experiences of these people. In this way narrative comes to play a central role in therapy."
