Description - Deconstructing Psychotherapy by Ian Patrick
Examines the arguments on the discursive and postmodern turn in psychotherapy. The contributors reflect on the role of psychotherapy in contemporary culture; develop critiques of language in psychotherapy; and rework a place for the subject in the transformative therapeutic practice. Deconstruction is brought to bear on the key conceptual and pragmatic issues that therapists and clinical psychologists face, and the project of therapy is opened up to critical attention and reconstruction.
