Narrative Therapy using the 'Heart and Wall' Tool

The heart and wall is a metaphor based on the Narrative Therapy ideas of ‘externalising’ the problem.

Advanced Applications in Narrative Therapy #1: Externalising Problems and Developing Preferred Identities

‘The person is not the problem, the problem is the problem’ is one of the central tenets of narrative theory and is most vividly expressed through ‘externalising practices’.

This significantly challenges taken for granted ideas about self and identity. Designed for those who already have some... [More]
