Watts, Richard E.
Family Journal: Counseling and Therapy for Couples and Families, v11 n1 p73-75 Jan 2003
An integration of Adlerian and social constructionist ideas, the reflecting "as if" technique asks clients to take a reflective step backward to consider perceptual and behavioral alternatives as a prelude to their acting as if they were the couple they desire to be. This article describes the reflecting as if technique and provides a brief case study demonstrating its use. (Contains 15 references.) (Author)
