Title: Talk as Therapy
Subtitle: Psychotherapy in a Linguistic Perspective
Written By: Joanna Pawelczyk
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9781934078662-1
Series Title: Trends in Applied Linguistics [TAL] 7
Description:

The book is an empirical study of naturally occurring talk between
psychotherapist and clients experiencing various anxieties and traumas that
most of us recognize and can relate to. By relying on contemporary theories
about sequential, situated discourse as well as drawing on “praxis” literature, it
aims to investigate how psychotherapy as practice is contextually and
interactionally accomplished. By scrutinizing patterns of language use, which
reflect the core norms of the speech event of psychotherapy, it offers a unique
look into the therapeutic dialogue at the micro level. The book presents a host
of practical guidelines as to how to conduct ethnographic fieldwork at the
(inter)professional research site in order to produce practically relevant findings.
It also addresses the infiltration of therapeutic norms and strategies into new
social contexts.
