Book Description

17 Jun 2004 1593850336 978-1593850333
From faculty and associates of the Stone Center's Jean Baker Miller Training Institute, this practice-oriented casebook shows how Relational-Cultural Theory (RCT) translates into therapeutic action. Richly textured chapters - all written especially for this volume - explain key concepts of RCT and demonstrate their application with diverse individuals, couples, families, and groups, as well as in institutional settings. Emphasizing that relationship is the work of therapy, case narratives illuminate both the therapist and client factors that promote or interfere with movement toward connection. Highlighted are the ways in which cultural contexts profoundly influence relationships; how growthful connection inevitably includes conflict; and how experienced therapists work on a moment-by-moment basis to engage with and counteract personal and cultural forces of disconnection.

Product Description

Review

"How Connections Heal is an exemplary contribution to the all-too-scant literature that discusses clinical process from the viewpoint of both clients and therapists. The eleven case studies address a range of clinical modalities, including individual, couple, and group therapy, while also considering treatment approaches with women in prison, delinquent girls, and substance abusers. The authors' interest in and ability to utilize an understanding of cultural variables is intrinsic to the treatment model, and is of particular value to mental health practitioners treating diverse clients. This book will be read and reread, both by graduate students in the various mental health fields and by experienced therapists who wish to advance their understanding of how treatment actually works. Regardless of the reader's theoretical orientation, the book makes an impressive and eloquent argument for the value of studying case material in fine detail."--Gerald Schamess, MSS, Professor Emeritus, Smith College School for Social Work "A major contribution to the psychotherapy literature. Superbly organized and written chapters present a rich and wide array of cases, providing articulate, powerful illustrations of how relational-cultural theory can be applied in practice. Up-close views of work with diverse clients include fascinating discussions of therapist self-reflection and the repair of therapeutic errors. Much more of a 'page turner' than one can usually hope for in a professional book, How Connections Heal presents therapeutic dilemmas with which readers will readily identify and shows how other therapists have resolved them, interweaving cultural and feminist perspectives throughout. This is a highly interesting and informative resource for new as well as seasoned psychotherapists."--Melba J. T. Vasquez, PhD, ABPP, private practice, Austin, Texas; past president, American Psychological Association Society for the Psychology of Women (Division 35) and Society of Couns

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Relational-Cultural Theory Reading 13 Feb 2014
By Nyasha - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I recommend this text, along with The Healing Connection, Women's Growth in Diversity, and Women's Growth in Relation. Speaking of the importance of relationality in human development and functioning is much more commonplace these days; however, these texts were the portal to this way of thinking for me. I highly recommend.
