Tom Strong is a psychologist and counselor-educator with the Division of Applied Psychology at the University of Calgary. Until recently Tom practiced social constructionist, or discursive, approaches to therapy in northwestern British Columbia but his curiosity and love of ideas related to collaborative change overtook him. His research and writing now focuses on the collaborative and ethical potentials and practicalities he sees afforded by discursive approaches to psychotherapy. Co-editor (with David Paré) of the recent book “Furthering Talk: Advances in the Discursive Therapies” (Kluwer Academic/Plenum), editorial board member with the Journal of Systemic Therapies and New Therapist, Tom also teaches with Massey University’s (New Zealand) online Postgraduate Program in Discursive Therapies. For more information on Tom’s work and affiliations please consult his website at: or contact him directly.
