Direction and Discovery: A Conversation about Power and Politics in Narrative Therapy with Michael White and Jeff Zimmerman
Pages 29

Attention to the politics of experience and to the politics of therapeutic conversation has been a hallmark of the narrative therapy approach, as reflected in the work and personal ethics of one its founders, Michael White (see Chapter 3). Joining us for this conversation was Jeff Zimmerman, the director of the Bay Area Family Therapy Training Associates (BAFTTA) and co-author (with Vicky Dickerson) of If Problems Talked: Narrative Therapy in Action (1996) and a number of valuable papers (e.g., Dickerson & Zimmerman, 1992, 1993, 1995; Dickerson, Zimmerman & Berndt, 1994; Zimmerman & Dickerson, 1994a, 1994b, 1995).
