Acting within and against hegemonic practices and discourses

Janice Orrell, Suzanne Alder

    Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


    This chapter presents an abbreviated story of a health practitioner and a client, as they attempt to address the pain that brings the patient in for therapy. The choice to use a therapeutic narrative as an illustrative device in this chapter is based on a recognition of the richness and authenticity that is gained in understanding the lived experiences within a life drama (Mattingly, 1998).
