Authors, Artists, and Social Constructionism: A Case Study of Narrative Supervision
family therapy, social constructionism, supervision
Many family therapists have incorporated social constructionist and narrative ideas into their work with clients. These ideas emphasize postmodern tenets of collaboration, non-directiveness, and multiple perspectives. Although these approaches have become common in therapy, they are also useful in supervision. This article discusses how social constructionism can be applied in supervision, both as content to be taught and as a philosophy to be applied. A case study is presented that offers examples of using social constructionist philosophy and techniques in family therapy supervision. Suggestions for supervisors and therapists are offered.
