In this examination of the ubiquitous practice of bullying among youth, compelling first person stories vividly convey the lived experience of peer torment and how it impacted the lives of five diverse young women. Author Keith Berry’s own autoethnographic narratives and analysis add important relational communication, methodological, and ethical dimensions to their accounts. The personal stories create an opening to understand how this form of physical and verbal violence shapes identities, relationships, communication, and the construction of meaning among a variety of youth. The layered narrative describes the practices constituting bullying and how youth work to cope with peer torment and its aftermath, largely focusing on identity construction and well being; addresses contemporary cyberbullying as well as other forms of relational aggression in many social contexts across race, gender, and sexual orientations; is written in a compelling way to be accessible to students in communication, education, psychology, social welfare, and other fields.

This comprehensive text is the first to introduce evocative autoethnography as a methodology and a way of life in the human sciences. Using numerous examples from their work and others, world-renowned scholars Arthur Bochner and Carolyn Ellis, originators of the method, emphasize how to connect intellectually and emotionally to the lives of readers throughout the challenging process of representing lived experiences. Written as the story of a fictional workshop, based on many similar sessions led by the authors, it incorporates group discussions, common questions, and workshop handouts. The book: describes the history, development, and purposes of evocative storytelling; provides detailed instruction on becoming a story-writer and living a writing life; examines fundamental ethical issues, dilemmas, and responsibilities; illustrates ways ethnography intersects with autoethnography; calls attention to how truth and memory figure into the works and lives of evocative autoethnographers.

White Folks explores the experiences and stories of eight white people from a small farming community in northern Wisconsin. It examines how white people learn to be 'white' and reveals how white racial identity is dependent on people of color-even in situations where white people have little or no contact with racial others. Drawing on in-depth interviews with Delores, Frank, William, Erin, Robert, Libby, and Stan, as well as on his own experiences growing up in this same rural community, Lensmire creates a portrait of white people that highlights how their relations to people of color and their cultures are seldom simple and are characterized not just by fear and rejection, but also by attraction, envy, and desire. White Folks helps readers recognize the profound ambivalence that has characterized white thinking and feeling in relation to people of color for at least the last two hundred years. There is nothing smooth about the souls of white folks. Current antiracist work is often grounded in a white privilege framework that has proven ineffective - in part because it reduces white people to little more than the embodiment of privilege. Lensmire provides an alternative that confronts the violence at the core of white racial selves that has become increasingly visible in American society and politics, but that also illuminates conflicts and complexities there.

This book examines a collaboration between traditional Māori healing and clinical psychiatry. Comprised of transcribed interviews and detailed meditations on practice, it demonstrates how bicultural partnership frameworks can augment mental health treatment by balancing local imperatives with sound and careful psychiatric care. In the first chapter, Māori healer Wiremu NiaNia outlines the key concepts that underpin his worldview and work. He then discusses the social, historical, and cultural context of his relationship with Allister Bush, a child and adolescent psychiatrist. The main body of the book comprises chapters that each recount the story of one young person and their family’s experience of Māori healing from three or more points of view: those of the psychiatrist, the Māori healer and the young person and other family members who participated in and experienced the healing. With a foreword by Sir Mason Durie, this book is essential reading for psychologists, social workers, nurses, therapists, psychiatrists, and students interested in bicultural studies.

Das literarische Abenteuer aus Norwegen, das autobiographische Projekt von Karl Ove Knausgård geht weiter: Nach Sterben und Lieben nun Spielen – ein Roman über eine Kindheit, der eine Welt beschreibt, in der Kinder und Erwachsene parallele Leben führen, die sich nie begegnen. Alles beginnt mit einer traditionellen Familie: Vater, Mutter und zwei Jungen, die nach Südnorwegen ziehen, in ein neues Haus in einer neuen Siedlung. Es sind die frühen Siebzigerjahre, die Kinder sind klein, die Eltern jung, die Zukunft scheint offen und verheißungsvoll. Aber irgendwann beginnt sie sich zu schließen, irgendwann wird das, was mit großen Hoffnungen begann, klein und festgelegt. Was ist passiert? Wie konnte es dazu kommen? »An einem milden und bewölkten Tag im August 1969 fuhr auf einer schmalen Straße am äußeren Ende einer südnorwegischen Insel, zwischen Wiesen und Felsen, Weiden und Wäldchen, ein Bus. Er gehörte der Arendal-Dampfschifffahrtsgesellschaft und war wie alle Busse des Unternehmens hell- und dunkelbraun. Er fuhr über eine Brücke, an einer schmalen Bucht entlang, blinkte rechts und hielt. Die Tür ging auf, eine kleine Familie stieg aus. Der Vater, ein großer und schlanker Mann in einem weißen Hemd und einer hellen Polyesterhose, trug zwei Koffer. Die Mutter, in einem beigen Mantel und mit einem hellblauen Kopftuch, das um die langen Haare geschlungen war, hielt an der einen Hand einen Kinderwagen und an der anderen einen kleinen Jungen. Als der Bus weitergefahren war, hing seine dicke, graue Abgaswolke noch für einen Moment über dem Asphalt.«
