As the number of postmodern theoretical contributions to the literature of psychology has grown, so have postmodernism's appeals and recognitions of its relevance. Many of these writings suggest practical applications, yet there is a gap in the literature between theoretical explications and in-depth accounts of the many forms of everyday practice that flow from it. This book provides a means to bridge this gap. Collaborative Therapy is a practice and guide book that brings together applications, innovations, and expansions of postmodern collaborative therapy with an emphasis on clinical practice. A wide variety of professionals from diverse disciplines, contexts, and cultures detail what they actually do in their therapy practices. The book also demonstrates the extension and usefulness of a postmodern collaborative approach to the domains of education, research, and organizations. The text is divided into three sections. Each section provides descriptions of the application to a specific population, problem, or context. Section one provides the historical and theoretical background of collaborative therapy. Section two focuses on a variety of psychotherapeutic specialties including domestic violence, the elderly, chronic illness, eating disorders, and children. Section three offers examples of how postmodern perspective can be put into action.

Tom Andersen, Harlene Anderson, and Michael White have shaped the landscapes of dialogical, collaborative, and narrative therapies. This unique book archives one of their gatherings and, in the spirit of therapeutic practice, is conversational and captures the presentations and exchanges between the three main contributors and international discussants. Tom Andersen invites us along to navigate the ‘forks in the road’ he faced in his emerging career, and he revisits the development of his pioneering ideas such as reflecting teams. Harlene Anderson paints the picture of her experiences in collaboration with women in Bosnia. Michael White, co-founder of the narrative therapy tradition, then provides a clear example of the frontiers of collaborative post-modern therapies. Through the introduction of the theory and application of Vygotskian ideas Michael excites the reader about what is possible to know and do in a therapeutic conversation.

'The passion to continually be on the move to seek new understanding is a characteristic of the field of family therapy and systemic thinking over the last forty years. Many professionals have moved around, more or less freely, in and out of this field. Some have made footprints that will last for a long time. One of these is Tom Andersen. From a position as professor in social psychiatry at the University of Tromso in northern Norway he has moved around the world participating with other professionals in their efforts to develop their work and seek wider horizons.' - Harlene Anderson and Per Jensen, from the Preface

Collaborative Therapy and Neurobiology is the book many clinicians have been waiting for: an integration of twenty years of scientific and therapeutic cutting-edge ideas into concrete clinical practices. Interpersonal neurobiology and the development of exciting new technologies that allow us to better understand the brain have provided us with an enriched perspective on human experience. Yet, many clinicians wonder how to use this knowledge, and how these discoveries can actually benefit their clients. In particular, what are the concrete practices that each field uses to help clients overcome the issues in their lives, and how can these fields build on each other’s ideas? Could minimally developed concepts in each field be combined into innovative and powerful practices to foster client wellbeing? This book offers a collection of writings which provide theoretical food for thought, research evidence, and most importantly hands-on, concrete clinical ideas to enrich therapists’ work with a variety of clients. Illustrated with numerous transcripts of conversations and clinical stories, the ideas in this book will stimulate the work of people interested in renewing their practice with new ideas.

Preeminent author and researcher Sherry Turkle has been studying digital culture for over thirty years. Long an enthusiast for its possibilities, here she investigates a troubling consequence: that we have stopped having face-to-face conversation in favour of technological connections such as texts or emails. Based on five years of research and interviews in homes, schools and the workplace, Turkle argues here that we now have a better understanding of this phenomenon, and that going forward, it's time we reclaim conversation, the most human thing that we do.
