Steven Friedman, Ph.D.
Featured In: Volume 3: "A Narrative/Constructivist Approach to Brief Family Treatment"
5 Cutter Lane, Harbourside Quincy, MA 02171
Dr. Steven Friedman''s work combines the new competency-based approaches with the narrative constructivist approach. Within this context, the clinician acts as a facilitator who helps the client generate new stories of strength, hope, and optimism--alternatives to the problem-saturated stories that compel the patient to seek treatment. Dr. Friedman is a psychologist and family therapist at the Braintree Mass. Center of the Harvard Community Health Plan. He received his Ph.D. from Boston University in 1971, and is the author and co-author of several books on Brief Treatment, including The First Session in Brief Therapy, co-authored with Simon Budman and Michael Hoyt; and The New Language of Change: Constructive Collaboration in Psychotherapy. Both books are available through Guilford Press.
