Constructivist therapists considered therapy a conversation where they might be catalysts of change, but could not induce it, and it became much rarer that therapists concluded sessions with specifically designed interventions. The authors report some final interventions addressed to couples, families, individuals and therapists in supervision in order to revalue this technique according to the socio-constructionist narrative Shared Reality Model. Final interventions can be a persuasive instrument of change when well structured and appealing to the specificities of each client’s and family’s story and therapeutic process.
Keywords: Conclusive interventions, Shared Reality Model, end of therapeutic session, persuasive reasoning, end of sessions texts.
