WHAT I’VE BEEN READING: The Art of Narrative by Frida C. Rundell

The author of this book is the founding professor of the International Institute for Restorative Practices. The book aims to provide practitioners in the field of restorative practices with an understanding of narrative practices based in post-modern narrative therapy.

The book covers interventions such as externalising, positioning, unique moments, re-authoring and re-membering, listening circles, compassionate witnessing circles and other creative methods. It also introduces using narrative techniques as part of co-vision (small group supervision) for practitioners.

If you are interested in narrative approaches to conflict work, this book provides a short and simple overview. Even if you do not work within a narrative framework, the book includes many activities and interesting questions that could be used in other conflict-related interventions.
