Examine the dynamic role of creativity in therapy! Creativity in Psychotherapy: Reaching New Heights with Individuals, Couples, and Families examines the nature, role, and importance of creative thinking in counseling and therapy. Authors David K. Carson and Kent W. Becker combine extensive backgrounds in marriage and family therapy and counseling to give you a unique resource that fills a crucial gap in the therapy literature. The book explores various aspects of creative thinking, personal characteristics of highly creative therapists, creative techniques and interventions, barriers to creative work, and creativity development. Not designed as a “cookbook” for conducting therapy, Creativity in Psychotherapy features practical techniques and interventions for conducting therapy with children, adults, couples, and families. Creativity in Psychotherapy: Reaching New Heights with Individuals, Couples, and Families is a much-needed response to the need for a pragmatic approach that makes sense, using methods, techniques, and applications based in respected, established theoretical principles and empirical research. The book establishes a mind-set the therapist can use to work with clients in discovering creative solutions, instead of viewing creative interventions as a grab bag of techniques. Creativity in Psychotherapy includes: a look at the various dimensions of creativity in counseling and psychotherapy an overview of the relationship between creativity and healthy functioning an examination of the connection between creativity and dysfunction a review of the role of creativity in supervision a survey of 142 therapists in the United States on the use of creativity in their practices in-depth discussions, practical examples, and illustrations “Creative Incubation” and “Break Out of The Box” exercises in each chapter! Creativity in Psychotherapy: Reaching New Heights with Individuals, Couples, and Families is well-suited for use as a primary or supplemental textbook for graduate and undergraduate courses in marriage and family therapy, psychotherapy, and counseling, and can easily be adapted for use in social work, counselor education, and clinical psychology courses. The book is an essential read for practicing psychotherapists, family therapists, counselors, social workers, psychologists, and other human service professionals.

No rational field of study or practice would choose to occupy organizational or social margins. Or would it? Adult educators increasingly risk and resist being placed at the margins of academic and other organizations. This volume argues that depending on how those margins are defined, margins can be a place of creativity and power from which to examine and challenge domincant ideology and practice. Chapters explore advances and effective practices being made in the margins of adult education from several perspectives including community-based programs, interreligious learning, human resource development, African-American underrrepresentation in the academy, and degree granting adult education programs. Other areas explored include an interdiciplinary Web-based patient education research program and educational focus on citizenship and public responsibility skills. This volume moves beyond the traditional definition of the margin as a power- and resource-poor position in which individuals are relegated to supporting roles and demonstrates how to embrace, expand, and blend the margins of adult education by collaborating with others to influence the mainstream. This is the 104th issue of the Jossey-Bass quarterly series New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education.Â

The political landscape of adult education is a rough terrain, made more so by the decisions and issues in adult education practice that are inherently political. Adult educators often grapple with but do not necessarily give voice to the range of political issues and power struggles that frame practice. In recognition of the reality that adult educators interact among competing interests and power in their day to day practice, this volume aims to make more visable what is known but not discussed: the politics of the work of adult education. Grounded in both theory and practice, this volume identifies key political issues within adult education and suggests strategies for reflection and action. The chapters address the examination and negotiation of the political aspects of higher education, adult educators in K-12-focussed colleges of education, literacy education, social welfare reform, professional organizations, and identity of the field. This volume will aid adult educators in reflecting on and sharing the political challenges they confront in their everyday practice of adult education.
