In recent years, the field of 'trauma work' has grown exponentially and the increased interest in these matters offers many possibilities. The wide-ranging, thoughtful and practice-based book provides clear explanations about how to use narrative ideas to respond to adults, couples, and/or children who have endured traumatic experience. Stories of inspiring work from Australia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Palestine, Israel and South Africa are also included. We hope these stories will spark conversations in your own context and lead to continuing creativity in your work. If you are responding to people who have experienced trauma, or if you have endured traumatic experience yourself, this book may prove to be a loyal, trustworthy, and indespensable companion.
