Self-narratives

£13.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Filled with case studies and examples, this book elaborates a model of the clinical use of self-narratives - the stories that people tell to construct meaning out of the events in their lives - in counselling and psychotherapy. As clients in therapy tell and retell personal stories over time, changes in their narratives illustrate gradual changes in their concerns, problems, and goals. Emphasizing cooperation between client and therapist, the authors show how examination of these narratives forms the basis for the therapeutic exploration of diverse psychic phenomena and dysfunctional personal meanings, and provides the opportunity for development of self-enhancing motives. The book includes a manual providing detailed treatment strategies, enriched by practical suggestions for the integration and adaptation of theory and method, and a series of self-investigative guidelines for the novice psychologist. This book should be of interest to therapists and counsellors in a wide range of orientations, as well as educators and students. It also serves as a text in counselling and psychotherapy courses on narrative psychology.
N.B. Stamp with previous owner's name on first page; plus use of highlighter pen on 10 pages. Otherwise in very good condition.
