"....A noteworthy collection of voices expressing the various ways that clinicians throughout the world have 'interpreted' and 'put into action' the stance and ethic of the reflecting team....This is an excellent book for anyone looking for wonderful and varied examples of the collaborative, language-based reflecting process." --Dean Reschke, M.S. in The Illinois Family Therapist
"This book is a signpost of a timely and imperative revolution in the history of psychotherapy. It is a celebration of what could be classified as the postmodern era in therapy: letting go of many of our cherished ideas about pathology, psychology, and psychiatry and, instead, inviting members of the community to join forces with us in the search for a mutually acceptable way of conceiving and tackling those exciting challenges our clients continue to bring to our attention." --Ben Furman, M.D., Brief Therapy Institute of Helsinki, Finland
"An international cast of therapists share their creative applications of the premises of the collaborative, language-based reflecting process--and vividly show how a plurality of voices and a multiplicity of listening positions interact to enhance new possibilities for both the client and the therapist across clinical and cultural contexts." --Harlene Anderson, Ph.D., Director, Houston Galveston Institute
"At last, the reflecting team, the third and perhaps most original of the 'postmodern' contributions to the therapeutic process--alongside narrative and solution focus--gets the full treatment it deserves. It is very fitting that it take the form it has in this, Steven Friedman's second compilation of reports from the cutting edge. He has given us a rich and fascinating series of reflections on the innumerable ways multivoiced conversations can make space for people to change their stories. There is something here for everyone, from the beginner who has been wondering what it's all about to those of us who have benefited from the breath of air Tom Andersen and his team brought to systemic therapy several years ago." --Alan Parry, Ph.D., Family Therapy Program, The University of Calgary
"...a wonderful collection of postmodern practices from around the world. Both experienced and novice clinicians will find these accounts exciting and inspiring." --Marcia Sheinberg, MSW, Director of Training, Ackerman Institute for Family Therapy
