This paper outlines the theory and approach of narrative therapy and applies this specifically to the context of contemporary practice in social work. This paper explores the use of externalising conversations to assist service users to re-author their lives. The problems inherent in adopting narrative approaches in Care Management is explored arguing that critical practice in social work requires a need to develop a language for practice which provides for recognition of the skilful activity of the work that social workers do.
