Using Poetic Documents: An Exploration of Poststructuralist Ideas and Poetic Practices in Narrative Therapy
British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, v33 n3 p283-298 Aug 2005
This paper explores the use of poetic documents in narrative therapy practice. It considers the ways in which feminist and poststructuralist ideas inform these practices and speculates about the extent to which a "poetic-mindedness" might sustain the practice of double- (or multiple-) listening. The author illustrates these explorations with examples from her own therapeutic practice.
