In this book, Dreier shows how clients make therapy work in their
everyday lives. Therapy cannot fulfill its purpose until the
clients can make it work outside the therapy room in relation to
the concerns, people, and places of their everyday lives. Research
on therapy has largely ignored these efforts. Based on session
transcripts and interviews with a family of four about their
everyday lives, Dreier shows the extensive and varied work the
clients do to make their therapy work across places. Processes of
change and learning are seen in a new perspective and it is shown
that expert practices depend on how persons conduct their everyday
lives. To grasp this, Dreier developed a theory of persons that is
based on how they conduct their lives in social practice. This
theory is grounded in critical psychology and social practice
theory and is also relevant for understanding other expert
practices such as education.
