Chapter Summary

David Epston and Michael White pioneered narrative therapy as an analytical approach. In their book, Narrative Means to Therapeutic Ends, they explain how the narrative therapeutic process works. The Book of Judith in the Septuagint seems to provide fertile ground for exploration as all of these elements - body, community and ideology -are present in highly overt/explicit ways. None of the commentaries that were consulted viewed Judith in terms of a master narrative and a challenging narrative. These concepts and their place within the narrative therapeutic framework as used by Epston and White are discussed in this chapter. Other relevant terms as used within the framework of narrative therapy are also briefly discussed.

Keywords: David Epston; Judith; Michael White
