Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Clean Language (meaning untainted by assumption or metaphor) was developed by therapist Dave Grove who sought to find respectful and effective ways to work with trauma victims. The approach he devised was based on a new type of questioning (and listening) that was rooted in honoring the client's language rather than paraphrasing it, and cleaning up his own communications with respect to assumptions and metaphors. Inspired by the effectiveness of Grove's work, James Lawley and Penny Tompkins studied the approach, codifyied and expanded upon it. Now, authors Sullivan and Rees introduce the concepts to the broad range of helping professional (from psychotherapist to organizational coach). The basic perspective is straightforward: keep your opinions and advice to yourself; listen attentively; ask Clean questions to explore metaphors; and listen to the answers and then ask more Clean questions about they've said.

Book News Annotation:

Created by New Zealand counseling psychologist David Grove (1951-2008) in the 1980s, Clean Language is a set of questions using the most basic elements of human perception--space, event, category, attribution, and intention--which can be combined with client-generated metaphors to help individuals heal. More recently, Clean has been applied in diverse areas to enable varied people and groups to work through complex problems. Sullivan and Rees present a practical guide to the use of Clean, not only by therapists and coaches, but also in conversations between parent and child, teacher and pupil, manager and staff, doctor and patient, researcher and subject, and in team meetings and organizational development work. Coverage includes an overview of Clean, reasons for using Clean, and the 12 basic Clean Language questions and how they are used. Registered psychotherapist Sullivan and former journalist Rees are Clean facilitators and trainers based in London. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
