THERAPY AS SOCIAL CONSTRUCTION

With Sheila McNamee, Julie Tilsen

Sheila McNamee, interviewed by Julie Tilsen, discusses the generative potential of therapy as social construction. As a philosophical stance, social construction positions us to view therapy as a conversational process not defined by nor limited to the specifications of particular models or the use of fixed techniques. This is followed by a consultation with Jeff, a therapist feeling 'stuck' with a client. Sheila works to open up possibilities for Jeff and his client by engaging in a fluid conversation fueled by curiosity and propelled by the generative and reflexive commentary of a reflecting team.
