Narrative therapy represents a new approach to helping people, as author Gary Paquin explains in this fresh and engaging addition to the social work literature. Although narrative therapy is recognized as an important therapeutic method, until now there was little information on how social workers can incorporate it into their practice. Paquin not only illustrates how this can be done, he also shows how narrative methods further the profession's commitments to diversity, social and economic justice, client empowerment, and strengths-based practice. Paquin considers the unique point of view of postmodernism embodied in narrative therapy and explores the power of stories in the lives of clients and social work practitioners. Paquin's text uses teaching exercises, along with many examples and transcripts, as practical and effective education tools.

Dr. Paquin was also a licensed clinical social worker and was the author of numerous articles and presentations. Dr. Paquin passed away in May 2007.

Review:

Clinical Social Work: A Narrative Approach is a much needed and welcome addition to the narrative literature. Paquin's unique contribution lies in his ability to integrate narrative practices with social work values. Throughout the book he shows how foundational social work beliefs in social justice, empowerment, community, and diversity are profoundly implicated in narrative work. As he explains narrative approaches to problem definition, externalization, docments, letters, teams, and audiences, Paquin's case examples and dialogues bring these ideas to life. His skillfully devised classroom exercises are excellent resources for teaching and learning these techniques. I predict that students will love the clear explanations, lively examples, and intereting discussions that this book offers. As a teacher of narrative practice, I can't wait to begin using it. --Ruth Grossman Dean, PhD, Professor, Simmons School of Social Work

As one of the originators of narrative therapy and community work and a social worker, I read this book with great joy and intense sadness. I rejoice in what I consider to be the most eloquent statement and description of narrative therapy in the context of social work practice. My sadness is because I write this after Gary's death. --David Epston
