"This is perhaps the most useful book to appear since the earliest writings in the post-modern/collaborative/narrative work pioneered by three icons of the therapy world - Tom Andersen, Harlene Anderson, and Michael White. Shaped into a book by three cutting edge researchers (Tapio Mailinen, Scot Cooper, and Frank N. Thomas), this highly readable and informative multilogue brings the reader into an extraordinary exchange of ideas that occurred in Hameenlinna Finland immediately before the sudden and unexpected death of Andersen and White, two of the three principal architects of collaborative/narrative dialogue/philosophy, who are the focus of this engaging volume. Destined to become a classic, I recommend this book to everyone in the behavioral sciences, from beginning student to seasoned sage - any thoughtful person wanting to consider one's manner of 'being-in-the-world,' and willing to invest in a thoroughly enjoyable exploration of what sort of 'social life becomes possible when one way of talking and acting is employed versus another.'" - Wendel A. Ray, PhD, Senior Research Fellow, Mental Research Institute (MRI), Palo Alto, CA; Professor of Family System Theory, Marriage & Family Therapy Program, The University of Louisiana - Monroe, USA
"Reading this book is like being invited into numerous and overlapping conversations among friends at a party. The solo voices of Tom, Harlene, and Michael rise clearly and distinctly, and yet we hear the harmony that comes from their passion for the relational. Thanks to the editors for hosting and welcoming us into these conversations." - Dan Wulff, PhD, and Sally St. George, PhD, Associate Professors, University of Calgary, Canada
"Elegantly written and profoundly thought provoking, this book solidifies the historical ground under collaborative therapies and re-invigorates these ideas with fresh, inspiring, and exciting innovations." - Marie-Nathalie Beaudoin, PhD, BAFTTA Training Director; Author, The Skill-ionaire in Every Child
"I was quickly drawn in by the innovative format of this book and enjoyed the histories of ideas that are shared as well as the emerging ideas and practices which infuse life into narrative and collaborative therapies." - Shona Russell, B Soc. Admin., MA, Therapist and teacher, Narrative Practices Adelaide, South Australia
"George Kelly once said, 'If you don't know, ask; perhaps your client will tell you.' Andersen, Anderson, and White not only asked, they listened and co-created dialogues with their clients. And now, this book's authors present their stimulating dialogues." - John Littrell, EdD, Author, Brief Counseling in Action and Portrait and Model of a School Counselor
