What if there were no objective facts, no objective truth, only our belief in them? What if our consciousness itself is an unconscious invention, constructed out of logic and language? In this thought-provoking volume, Lynn Segal describes how the ideas of Heinz von Foerster compel us to explore the question "Do we discover the world or do we invent it?". He suggests that we must first know how we think before we can claim knowledge of the world. While Constructivism may seem relevant only to those in the cognitive sciences, it is, in fact, highly relevant to everyone. Paradoxically, grasping the limits of our own understanding can free us to live more creative and meaningful personal and professional lives.

Constructivism is based on the principle that our personalities, behavior, and society are organized by the ways in which we attribute meanings to events, and act upon those meanings. In this volume, Fisher introduces social workers to constructivism, a perspective that is becoming increasingly popular in the social sciences, and that has already been embraced by clinical psychologists, communication researchers, and cyberneticians. Fisher explains constructivism as an epistemology and demonstrates the ethical appropriateness and practice relevance of constructivism for social work.

The Handbook of Constructive Therapies provides a highly practical guide to many innovative therapeutic techniques that have come to be known as constructive therapies.Written by leading theoreticians and clinicians, this extraordinary compAndium represents a variety of contemporary therapeutic schools?including solution-focused, narrative, collaborative language systems, reflecting team, interactional, and neo-Ericksonian?that all share an optimistic view of people as resourceful individuals who, for better or worse, construct their own psychological realities. These approaches emphasize respectful collaboration and focus on the strengths and resources of the client. Constructive therapies look more to where people want to go rather than to where they have been.This ground-breaking book is designed to be a user's guide for both the seasoned professional and beginning practitioner. The Handbook of Constructive Therapies reveals how clinicians can have a fuller appreciation of the powers of language and imagination and shows how to incorporate the qualities of caring, collaboration, and respect for a client's abilities. The twenty-two original chapters and extensive introduction are filled with creative concepts, specific techniques, and illustrative case examples that will help clinicians develop the skills they need to use these results-oriented therapies within their own practice. The authors show how to apply these approaches with a wide range of individuals and families including such difficult clients as violent men, troubled children, couples in conflict, people with eating disorders, victims of abuse, and others with severe and persistent problems. These timely innovations are user friAndly and well-suited to meet the demands for greater efficiency and accountability required in today's health care environment.The Handbook for Constructive Therapies is an invaluable aid for all clinicians who want to integrate their own insights and experiences
