Collaborative Therapy: Relationships and Conversations that Make a Difference
Harlene Anderson, Diane R. Gehart
Routledge, 2007 - Psychology - 443 pages
As the number of postmodern theoretical contributions to the literature of psychology has grown, so have postmodernism's appeals and recognitions of its relevance. Many of these writings suggest practical applications, yet there is a gap in the literature between theoretical explications and in-depth accounts of the many forms of everyday practice that flow from it. This book provides a means to bridge this gap. Collaborative Therapy is a practice and guide book that brings together applications, innovations, and expansions of postmodern collaborative therapy with an emphasis on clinical practice. A wide variety of professionals from diverse disciplines, contexts, and cultures detail what they actually do in their therapy practices. The book also demonstrates the extension and usefulness of a postmodern collaborative approach to the domains of education, research, and organizations. The text is divided into three sections. Each section provides descriptions of the application to a specific population, problem, or context. Section one provides the historical and theoretical background of collaborative therapy. Section two focuses on a variety of psychotherapeutic specialties including domestic violence, the elderly, chronic illness, eating disorders, and children. Section three offers examples of how postmodern perspective can be put into action.
