Life story work is an approach designed to enable traumatized children to explore, question and understand the past events of their lives. It aims to secure their future by strengthening attachment with their carers and providing the opportunity to develop a healthy sense of self and a feeling of wellbeing. This new edited volume documents innovative ways in which life story work has been developed. It draws on the work of nine life story centres based around the world and provides understanding and guidance for those working with children who have experienced trauma. The book illustrates current theory and practice and looks at how the approach is being used in a variety of settings including schools, intensive services, youth justice, and post-adoption support, highlighting its versatility. The importance of trauma-informed practice when working with vulnerable children is emphasised throughout, to help practitioners provide the best for the children in their care.

Over the past decade, a significant body of work on the topic of deaf identities has emerged. In this volume, Leigh and O'Brien bring together scholars from a wide range of disciplines -- anthropology, counseling, education, literary criticism, practical religion, philosophy, psychology, sociology, and deaf studies -- to examine deaf identity paradigms. In this book, contributing authors describe their perspectives on what deaf identities represent, how these identities develop, and the ways in which societal influences shape these identities. Intersectionality, examination of medical, educational, and family systems, linguistic deprivation, the role of oppressive influences, the deaf body, and positive deaf identity development, are among the topics examined in the quest to better understand deaf identities. In reflection, contributors have intertwined both scholarly and personal perspectives to animate these academic debates. The result is a book that reinforces the multiple ways in which deaf identities manifest, empowering those whose identity formation is influenced by being deaf or hard of hearing.

Dealing with the joy and wisdom of the elderly, as well as with their anxiety and grief, this book shows how life stories and the reactions of others to them are of central importance to the elderly - maintaining or threatening their sense of personal well-being. Understanding the many roles these stories can play enhances the impact that nurses, welfare workers, social workers and psychologists have on the lives of elderly people. This book provides an approach to therapy based on the concept of such stories. The author shows how to use this technique by the adoption of strategies and the use of case studies. Suggested readings at the ends of the chapters and the list of definitions of some personal construct theory terms at the end of the book will make the volume useful to all professionals working in this field.

Stories can comfort us as we realise our predicament is shared; let us better see our struggles and conflicts when projected onto characters; suggest new opportunities for helping others and breaking though our own impasses. These stories have been frequently shared and gradually embellished by the authors for use in alleviating people's suffering. Each addresses a relevant theme, presenting both client and therapist perspectives. They engage with difficulties faced by people throughout their lives including: school phobia, parental death, spiritual re-evaluation, life threatening illness, the losses of old age. They portray traditional and innovative ways of conceptualising human problems, and share dilemmas about how to choose and apply the most appropriate therapeutic techniques.
