Abstract

Constructivists link their therapeutic approach to arguments against an objectivist epistemology. These anti-objectivist arguments are examined: it is concluded that none of them is cogent. The question of whether acceptance of a constructivist, non-objectivist epistemology is likely to affect constructivists' therapeutic practice is considered.
