The Appropriation and Reification of Deviance: Personal Construct Psychology and Affirmative Therapy. A Response to Harrison.
Cross, Malcolm C.
British Journal of Guidance & Counselling, v29 n3 p337-43 Aug 2001
Examines the implications of gay affirmative therapy from a personal construct perspective (PCP). Argues that the construction of self can only be impoverished when derived from a role manufactured external to the individual. PCP advocates that therapeutic affirmation must be at the level of possibility if counselors are to avoid prescription and disenfranchising clients. (Contains 19 references.) (GCP)
