Abstract: Narrative approaches to therapy have come to occupy a central position within the field of family therapy in recent years and this is due in large part to the influence of Michael White. Alone and in collaboration with David Eptson, Michael has pioneered the development of this approach to practice. Inspired by this seminal work, other practitioners have begun to write about narrative therapy in clinical practice to debate its place within the wider field of family therapy and to incorporate ideas from narrative therapy into mainstream mental health practices. Narrative therapists works with a wide range of client groups with difficulties which are recognized within mainstream mental-health circles as being among the most difficult to treat including childhood conduct problems; delinquency; bullying; anorexia nervosa; child abuse; marital conflict; grief reactions; adjustment to AIDS; and schizophrenia.
