"Limits to Therapy and Counselling": Deconstructing a Professional Ideology.
House, Richard
British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, v27 n3 p377-92 Aug 1999
Argues that the scientific status of therapy as a modernists enterprise is undermined by new-paradigm epistemologies. Draws on Parker's work on discourse to illustrate these radical arguments and makes the case for an approach to therapy which is ongoingly and processually deconstructive of its 'professional' ideologies and clinical practices, if the kind of dangers outlined are to be avoided.
