Summary and Info
This is a book about how to do psychotherapy--how to apply the science of change to the complexities of helping people develop new meanings in their lives. Michael J. Mahoney's integrative perspective, clinical wisdom, and engaging, personal style make this a vital resource for everyone from students to seasoned professionals. Beyond providing a clear exposition of constructivist principles, Mahoney illuminates what a skilled therapist actually does in day-to-day practice. Guidelines are presented for assessing clients and implementing a variety of interventions, including centering techniques, problem solving, pattern work, meditation and embodiment exercises, drama and dream work, and spiritual exploration. Illustrated with rich case examples, the book highlights ways to nurture the therapeutic relationship and support the therapist's own self-discovery and growth. Appendices feature reproducible client forms, handouts, and other useful materials.
