Narrative Psychiatry and Family Collaborations

My new book on Narrative Psychiatry and Family Collaborations will be published in March 2022.

The book will be of interest to child and adolescent psychiatrists interested in narrative therapy, as well as other mental health professionals working with children and families.

Narrative Psychiatry and Family Collaborations is about helping families with complex psychiatric problems by seeing and meeting the families and the family members, as the best versions of themselves, before we see and address the diagnoses.

When one person is struggling with a psychiatric illness, their family struggles, too. Therefore, the whole family deserves help together.

The book can already be ordered now.
