Like its predecessor, Constructive Therapies, Volume 1, this engaging book presents a range of creative, time-effective approaches for helping clients build on their competencies and develop their own solutions. In-depth interviews with Michael White, Steve de Shazer, Bill O'Hanlon, Donald Meichenbaum, and Kenneth Gergen are incorporated with other clinicially oriented chapters from well-known therapists. Topics covered include different styles of constructive therapy, the externalization and deconstruction of problems, narrative work with ADHD-diagnosed children, a solution-focused approach for dealing with cases of domestic violence, EMDR and the MRI interactional approach, actualizing the empty self in psychotherapy, emotional and spiritual healing, and more. Illustrative case examples are featured throughout.
