Abstract

Postmodern approaches, specifically those based on ideas from social constructionism such as narrative therapy and solution-focused therapy, are currently being used in a variety of contexts and with multiple cultures. The authors suggest ways in which narrative therapy and solution-focused therapy may appropriately be used with Latino/a populations. The authors review basic tenets and techniques of both narrative and solution-focused therapy emphasizing their application to Latinos/as.
