Psychotherapy has undergone major changes in recent years, with a variety of new approaches including cognitive-behavioural therapy joining the more traditional and widespread schools of thought. These new approaches all share the epistemological assumption of constructivism, which states that there are alternative ways of looking at events and that we interpret events according to how we see the world.
Constructivist Psychotherapy reviews the constructivist trends in psychotherapy which link these new approaches, allowing the reader to enter an entirely new dialogue. The book traces constructivist thought, elaborating on Kelly’s personal construct theory and the implications for psychotherapeutic theory and practice.
Areas of discussion include:
Setting constructivist psychotherapy within its therapeutic, social and philosophical context and using case studies throughout, the book revisits 'Kellian' ideas and theories, bringing them up to date, to explore what it is to be a constructivist psychotherapist today. As such this book will be of interest to all psychotherapists, as well as anyone with an interest in the psychotherapeutic field.

"This book represents the culmination of over a quarter of a century of careful work by the authors in developing their particular approach to constructivist psychotherapy. Not only does it contain an unusually detailed exposition of the assumptions underlying the approach, but it is also a rich source of clinical wisdom, which will be of great value to both trainees and more experienced therapists." - David Winter, University of Hertfordshire and Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust, UK.
"At last, a book series that will help to make the ideal of effective continuing professional development in the fields of psychotherapy and counselling more of a reality. Without being partisan or requiring an unrealistically high level of existing knowledge, the books offer a unique opportunity for experienced practitioners and advanced students to encounter the cutting edge of theory in their particular theoretical model." - Andrew Samuels, Professor of Analytical Psychology, University of Essex.
"A stunning little book, deceptively simple and straightforward; this book should be required reading for students and practitioners who wish to offer therapeutic help to those suffering from various losses and emotional upheavals, distresses that are frequently diagnosed as mental illness. Neimeyer is an adept student of psychotherapeutic theories, and he nimbly inserts various theoretical ideas within the chapters. An exciting and generative alternative for people seeking happier lives." --Mary Gergen, Ph.D., in PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 54, Release 45About the Author:
