          Abstract

          The author presents a set of philosophical assumptions that provide a different language for thinking about and responding to the persistent questions: "How can our therapy practices have relevance for people's everyday lives in our fast changing world, what is this relevance, and who determines it?" "Why do some shapes of relationships and forms of talk engage while others alienate? Why do some invite possibilities and ways forward not imagined before and others imprison us?" The author then translates the assumptions to inform a therapist's philosophical stance: a way of being. Next, she discusses the distinguishing features of the stance and how it facilitates collaborative relationships and dialogic conversations that offer fertile means to creative ends for therapists and their clients.
