In this chapter a systematized description of a number of practices central to Michael Whites narrative approach to therapy is given. These include collaborative positioning of th e therapist; externalizing the problem; excavating unique outcomes; thickening the new plot; and linking the new plot to the past and the future. The practices of re - membering and incorporation; using literary means to achieve therapeutic ends; and facili tating taking - it - back practices are also described. The paper closes with a number of questions which it may be useful for those concerned with narrative therapy to address.
