Both solution-focused and narrative therapies are parts of the postmodern approach to therapy. Postmodernists believe that reality and truth are understood as points of view that are restricted by history and context rather than rigid, unchanging facts. Postmodernists respect their client’s version of reality without disputing whether it is accurate or rational. Much like the person-centered therapists, postmodernists view their clients as experts in their own lives who are competent and resourceful and capable of overcoming their problems. In your post, choose either solution-focused therapy or narrative therapy and address the following:
- Choose three therapeutic techniques and procedures from either solution-focused therapy or narrative therapy and describe how the techniques connect to the key concepts of either solution-focused therapy or narrative therapy.
- If you had to choose one of the postmodern approaches to practice, which would it be and why?
- What are some ethical issues you may encounter using the postmodern approaches?
