Summary

Reflecting the trend of constructivist thinking across the sciences, this volume provides a framework for integrating newer ideas with the traditional practice of clinical social work. Its underlying assumptions are that construction of a mutual meaning system between therapist and client is essential for treatment, and that identity complexity is essential to healthy adaptation. Relating to former notions of process and content in treatment, this volume by Carolyn Saari illuminates these concepts.
