It also discusses the theories behind the therapies. The paper then discusses the writer's attitude towards the different therapy approaches and how he could apply these approaches to his daily life.

From the Paper:

"Social constructionism, SFBT, and narrative therapy are making many contributions to the field of psychotherapy. I especially value the optimistic orientation of these postmodern approaches that rest on the assumptions that people are competent and can be trusted to use their resources in creating better solutions and more life-affirming stories. Many postmodern practitioners and writers have found that clients are able to make significant moves toward building more satisfying lives in a relatively short period of time."
