The Handbook of Constructive Therapies: Innovative Approaches from Leading Practitioners

Wiley, 1998 - 480 pages
A guide to the use of treatment approaches known as constructive therapies

The leading teachers and practitioners in this powerful handbook represent a variety of schools of therapeutic treatments that all share an optimistic view of people as resourceful individuals who construct their own realities. Emphasizing a collaborative approach, the therapies focus on the strengths and resources of the clients and look to where people want to go rather than where they have been.

Hoyt should be commended for bringing together in one volume diverse voices that bring alive the exciting possibilities that mark and define this new era of psychotherapy.
?Steven Freidman, author of Time-Effective Psychotherapy
