ACA: truths.

The ACA first acknowledges that there are two different sorts of "truth" in statements from a client. The first is "historical truth,"which refers to the usual sense of having historical accuracy about events. The second is "narrative truth," in which the statements are viewed as significant and meaningful to the client, and in tune with his or her "life story," but where those statements may refer to events that have complete, partial or zero "historical truth" content.
