Michael White

The clinical director in my Master's program was very fond of narrative therapy. And so it's not a surprise that I got a good dose of it and am influenced by its tenets quite a bit in my clinical work.

I just got news on email that Michael White, a key figure in narrative therapy, died of a massive heart attack while at a speaking engagement in San Diego.

I was hoping that after this PhD is done, I could get more hands-on clinical training with some of the masters. It's too bad that I will not be able to watch Michael White at work. I've heard amazing things about the way he does therapy.

May he rest in peace, and his work continue to thrive.
