Collaborative Practice in Psychology and Therapy provides mainstream academics and practitioners with easy access to cutting-edge thinking in social constructionist psychology and therapy. This unique book is geared to readers who may not be familiar with narrative, social constructionist, or critical psychology and therapy, presenting contemporary theory and practice with a minimum of jargon. The field's leading practitioners and theorists demonstrate, through a collaborative and relational focus, how to work with people, rather than on them in a mutual, co-constructive exchange.
Collaborative Practice in Psychology and Therapy bridges the gap between modern and postmodern theory, providing a well-rounded view that enables readers to see how contemporary theory can be applied in various subdisciplines. Each user-friendly chapter is virtually free of technical terms, beginning with a readable thumbnail summary of the practical, accessible material that follows. The book includes case studies and examples, illustrations, tables, a brief glossary of the few terms that do need explaining, and suggestions for additional readings.
