2nd EDITION

In 2011 the American Psychological Association (APA) released Stephen Madigan’s book Narrative Therapy. This amazing little 'book that could' reached a massive audience and went on to become a 'best seller'. In 2019 the APA published the Second Edition of Narrative Therapy. This new text richly explores the amazing world wide renaissance in narrative therapy and guides the reader towards the most contemporary and exciting new practice developments that are shaping the future of our practice.

Book Review: Narrative Therapy 2nd Edition
In this Second Edition, Stephen Madigan does a superb job of “remembering the future” of narrative therapy by drawing on the rich traditions of its past and taking us to the multiple developments of the present.  He catches Michael White’s voracious appetite for learning new ideas and sweeps us up into whirlwind of iterations of narrative—true to the original innovative thinking.  Both those new to the narrative approach as well as longtime theoreticians and practitioners will delight in this explication.
—Victoria Dickerson, Ph.D., President, American Family Therapy Academy (AFTA).

Book Review: Narrative Therapy 2nd Edition

Stephen Madigan has done a brilliant job of conveying narrative therapy in a manner that is accessible while maintaining the richness and complexity of the concepts and practices. He seamlessly connects the theories that inform narrative therapy and the interventions the flow from those ideas.  Dr. Madigan is to be admired for his commitment and passion for circulating narrative practices to the larger therapy community.  Bravo!
