Tom Carlson (Fargo, USA) is a professor and director of the Couple and Family Therapy Doctoral Program at North Dakota State University and is the co-editor (along with David Epston) of a new journal dedicated to the reimagination of narrative practice called the Journal of Narrative Family Therapy. Tom has been practicing and teaching narrative ideas for over 20 years and has published several articles on narrative therapy that focus on helping therapists and the people that we work with to live out the spirit, values, and ethics of narrative ideas in their personal and professional lives. Tom is the developer of an alternative approach to narrative couples therapy called Relational Accountability (published in the International Journal of Narrative Therapy & Community Work) which invites couples to nurture stories of love and compassion in one another through the intentional living out of narrative ethics in their lives and relationships. Most recently Tom partnered with his friend and colleague David Epston in developing an emerging performance based narrative therapy practice called Insider Witnessing Practices that seek bring forth the beauty and dignification of people’s lives in dramatic ways.
