Talk as Action: A Narrative Approach to Action Theory

  • Marla J. Arvay

Abstract

Explains the contribution narrative makes to counselors' understanding of human action. By viewing action from a narrative perspective, it extends the construct of action beyond the realm of goal-directed behavior into the realm of language. States counselors must pay attention to the ways language can affect therapeutic practices.
