Click HERE for a free copy of Down Under and HERE for Up Over. David Epston continues to be a considerable influence on many family therapists/systemic psychotherapists, as well as being one of the two creators of Narrative Therapy, the other being the late Michael White.
Part One, Down Under, contains previously published work from different periods of Epston's writing career. As always, each chapter reflects Epston's creativity, and at times those of his co-writers.
Part Two, Up Over, contains six examples of Epston’s current work, all of which are printed here for the first time, including inventive approaches to chronic bed-wetting, relationships between children and their estranged fathers, court reports, stealing, and sibling conflicts, as well as a long chapter on Anti-Anorexia, a subject close to Epston's heart.
The Association of Family Therapy(UK) commissioned Down Under and Up Over: Travels with Narrative Therapy which was published in 2008 to accompany David at workshops sponsored by the AFT(UK) in London, Southampton, Birmingham and Manchester. The Association kindly allowed the ownership of the book to revert to David in 2011. Since then, David has made PDFs of it available on this website and elsewhere free of charge.
