‘Life Story Work is something we do all the time, be it reminiscing with friends or family about a particular event or period of our lives, or keeping memorabilia, photographs and written records. Reflecting on and re-examining past events and experiences helps us to make meaning of them in the present.’

As a certified play therapist and a qualified social worker, Karla and Suzanne have come together as independent Therapeutic Life Story Work practitioners to explore their experiences and the challenges they have faced, in order to support other practitioners entering this important area of practice. They share journeys taken alongside families they have supported. Not only does the book give insights from Karla and Suzanne’s own experiences, ideas and theories, but it also includes activities the authors have found helpful in supporting the young people with whom they have worked.
