    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articlepeer-review


    Practitioners in Hong Kong have long sought alternatives to dominant pathologising discourses. In 2001, when Michael White held his first open workshop in Hong Kong, a community of practitioners gathered and began exploring a localised narrative practice. In this paper, we describe the history of narrative practice in Hong Kong. We reflect on how narrative practice has informed social work and counselling practice and challenged individualistic understandings of problems and suffering. Finally, we share our hopes for the continued development of a culturally relevant and innovative narrative practice for Hong Kong.
