Temptations of Power and Certainty.
Amundson, Jon; And Others
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v19 n2 p111-23 Apr 1993
Contends that, when therapists do not adequately account for the position of clients, they fall prey to temptation of certainty and that, when therapists attempt to impose corrections from such certainty, they fall prey to temptation of power. Offers suggestions for sidestepping power/certainty by contrasting therapies of power and certainty with therapies of curiosity and empowerment. (Author/NB)
