Miriam also recommends, for child and family work (especially with Looked After children):
Connecting with Kids Through Stories: Using Narratives to Facilitate Attachment in Adopted Children
101 Healing Stories for Kids and Teens: Using Metaphors in Therapy and this looks like a good easy introduction to narrative therapy, and I've just ordered this...

The Dulwich Centre website also has lots of interesting stuff and links. Lots of Michael White stuff (he's co-director there).
