Product description


"This book guides us through the rapids and challenges of how to conduct conversations that lead to meaningful change. John Launer articulates with wonderful simplicity the subtleties of a narrative-based approach which enables people in difficult situations to negotiate and realise new ways of going forward. Given the ubiquity of calls for change and innovation, this book must be everyone's first port of call to make sure their plans and initiatives benefit from Launer's transformational approach to narrative communication." – Professor Rick Iedema, King’s College London, UK

"How can practitioners and patients become more receptive and responsive to each other? Launer’s book addresses this question, and resonates with today’s policy preoccupations; the need to develop relationships between practitioners working with the same patients in the same teams to improve collaborative practice. Narrative-based practice has yet to receive the attention in interprofessional education that it merits. 'Conversations Inviting Change' offers a remedy for this that I shall certainly keep to hand." – Hugh Barr, President, the Centre for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education
