Accessing the Rest-of-the-Story in Couples Therapy.
Sween, Erik
Family Journal: Counseling and Therapy for Couples and Families, v11 n1 p61-67 Jan 2003
This case presentation describes a Narrative- Constructivist Therapy approach for working with couples. The figure-ground metaphor is introduced as a way to understand how certain negative experiences and interpretations can become the predominant focus for couples. When couples become trapped in the troublesome same-old story of their relationship, it is important for therapists to listen for the rest-of-the-story. (Contains 16 references.) (GCP)
