Family Process Heft 1/2012
1/2011 - 2/2011 - 3/2011 - 4/2011 - Überblick

Lebow, Jay L. (2012): Listening to Many Voices. In: Family Process 51 (1): S. 1-7

Anderson, Harlene (2012): Collaborative Relationships and Dialogic Conversations: Ideas for a Relationally Responsive Practice. In: Family Process 51 (1): S. 8-24.

abstract: The author presents a set of philosophical assumptions that provide a different language for thinking about and responding to the persistent questions: “How can our therapy practices have relevance for people‘s everyday lives in our fast changing world, what is this relevance, and who determines it?” “Why do some shapes of relationships and forms of talk engage while others alienate? Why do some invite possibilities and ways forward not imagined before and others imprison us?” The author then translates the assumptions to inform a therapist‘s philosophical stance: a way of being. Next, she discusses the distinguishing features of the stance and how it facilitates collaborative relationships and dialogic conversations that offer fertile means to creative ends for therapists and their clients.

Charlés, Laurie L. (2012): Producing Evidence of a Miracle: Exemplars of Therapy Conversation With a Survivor of Torture. In: Family Process 51 (1): S. 25-42.

abstract: This article illustrates the termination sessions of a therapy case with a survivor of torture, displaced to the United States after facing targeted persecution in his home country. Using methods of qualitative research in the naturalistic paradigm, I examine the case of the client‘s torture rehabilitation experience through his descriptions and evaluation of the therapy process. Excerpts from the dialogue of the final 2 sessions, during which we discussed the client‘s past and future through the miracle question, are highlighted in this article. A case is made for further multimodal qualitative analyses of therapy conversation with this population.

Gremillion, Helen, Aileen Cheshire & Dorothea Lewis (2012): Scaffolding a Community of Competent Practitioners: Positioning and Agency in a Training Program for Narrative Counseling. In: Family Process 51 (1): S. 43-55.

abstract: This article explores the scaffolding of learning experiences in a postgraduate program in New Zealand that offers training in narrative counseling. The authors draw on positioning theory to identify student shifts in learning, and in agency, that help build an increasingly skilled and peer-generated context for learning. We describe a selection of exercises and one key assignment, introduced in the course in a particular order, that we believe enable students to step into positions of agency which ultimately allow a competent community of learner–practitioners to emerge. We also describe a dance of positioning for ourselves as teachers in this program. We suggest that, at any given time, our own positioning is tied up with possibilities for student positioning. Acknowledging relationships of power in classrooms, we explore ways to align poststructuralist counseling practices and the teaching of these practices.

Parra, Cardona, Jose Ruben, Melanie Domenech-Rodriguez, Marion Forgatch, Cris Sullivan, Deborah Bybee, Kendal Holtrop, Ana Rocio Escobar-Chew, Lisa Tams, Brian Dates & Guillermo Bernal (2012): Culturally Adapting an Evidence-Based Parenting Intervention for Latino Immigrants: The Need to Integrate Fidelity and Cultural Relevance. In: Family Process 51 (1): S. 56-72.

abstract: Latinos constitute the largest ethnic minority group in the United States. However, the cultural adaptation and dissemination of evidence-based parenting interventions among Latino populations continues to be scarce despite extensive research that demonstrates the long-term positive effects of these interventions. The purpose of this article is threefold: (1) justify the importance of cultural adaptation research as a key strategy to disseminate efficacious interventions among Latinos, (2) describe the initial steps of a program of prevention research with Latino immigrants aimed at culturally adapting an evidence-based intervention informed by parent management training principles, and (3) discuss implications for advancing cultural adaptation prevention practice and research, based on the initial feasibility and cultural acceptability findings of the current investigation.

Tuttle, Amy R., Carmen Knudson-Martin & Lana Kim (2012): Parenting as Relationship: A Framework for Assessment and Practice. In: Family Process 51 (1): S. 73-89.

abstract: Parenting tends to be framed as a set of actions directed toward the child rather than as a relationship. This article helps therapists, parent–educators, and researchers conceptualize parenting as a socioculturally embedded relationship. The authors apply the relational orientations typology (Silverstein, Bass, Tuttle, Knudson-Martin, & Huenergardt, 2006) to parent–child relationships. The typology addresses two dimensions: whether the focus is on the child‘s meeting parental expectations or on expectations of mutuality and whether power between parent and child is expected to be symmetrical or asymmetrical. Four relational orientations are described: (1) rule directed, (2) position directed, (3) independence directed, and (4) relationship directed. These relational orientations describe the nature of the reciprocal relationship between parent and child and offer a framework from which to address parenting issues. A case illustration shows how the relational orientations framework helps therapists incorporate a larger systems/relational perspective into what was originally framed primarily as a child behavior problem.

Lebowitz, Eli, Dan Dolberger, Efi Nortov & Haim Omer (2012): Parent Training in Nonviolent Resistance for Adult Entitled Dependence. In: Family Process 51 (1): S. 90-106.

abstract: “Adult entitled dependence” is a condition characterized by the extreme dependence of grown children on their family and by levels of dysfunction, seemingly excessive in light of their apparent capacity to function. The family and the dependent adult become involved in an interaction in which the very attempts to alleviate the problem may aggravate it. Parent-training in nonviolent resistance (NVR) is an intervention that has been shown to be helpful to parents of behaviorally disturbed youth. Parent training in NVR offers parents means to shift away from a stance of helplessness toward realistic goals that are accomplishable without the collaboration of their offspring. We report on the parents of 27 entitled dependent grown children who participated in parent training in NVR. Additionally, we present 2 detailed case studies that exemplify the problem and the therapeutic process. Before treatment, the dependent adults were not working or studying, drew heavily on parental services (financial or otherwise), and were resistant to parental attempts to change the situation. Most parents succeeded in overcoming their helplessness and reducing the provision of parental services. In a considerable proportion of cases, the grown children started working or studying or moved to independent lodgings.

Rohrbaugh, Michael J., Varda Shoham, Jane A. Skoyen, Michaeline Jensen & Matthias R. Mehl (2012): We-Talk, Communal Coping, and Cessation Success in a Couple-Focused Intervention for Health-Compromised Smokers. In: Family Process 51 (1): S. 107-121.

abstract: We investigated first-person plural pronoun use (we-talk) by health-compromised smokers and their spouses as a possible implicit marker of adaptive, problem-resolving communal processes. Twenty couples in which one or both partners used tobacco despite one of them having a heart or lung problem participated in up to 10 sessions of a smoking cessation intervention designed to promote communal coping, where partners define smoking as “our” problem, rather than “your” problem or “my” problem, and take collaborative action to solve it. We used the Linguistic Inquiry Word Count automatic text analysis program to tabulate first-person pronoun use by both partners from transcripts of a pretreatment marital interaction task and later intervention sessions. Results indicated that pretreatment we-talk by the patient‘s spouse predicted whether the patient remained abstinent 12 months after quitting, and residualized change in we-talk by both partners during the course of intervention (controlling for baseline levels) predicted cessation outcomes as well. These findings add to evidence regarding the prognostic significance of partner we-talk for patient health and provide preliminary documentation of communal coping as a possible mechanism of change in couple-focused intervention.

Mortensen, Øystein, Torbjørn Torsheim, Ole Melkevik & Frode Thuen (2012): Adding a Baby to the Equation. Married and Cohabiting Women‘s Relationship Satisfaction in the Transition to Parenthood. In: Family Process 51 (1): S. 122-139.

abstract: The trajectory of relationship satisfaction among married and cohabiting women in their transition to parenthood was compared in a potential sample of 71,504 women taking part in the Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study (MoBa). Prospective longitudinal data were collected in 4 waves over a 2-year period starting 6 months prebirth. Results from latent curve models suggested that married and cohabiting women experience similar negative change in relationship satisfaction during the transition to parenthood. However, cohabiting women start off and stay less satisfied throughout the transition period, suggesting the presence of a negative cohabitation effect that prevailed after controlling for various covariates. Extending investigation on the cohabitation effect to the transition to parenthood, and replicating it in a Scandinavian context, is discussed in relation to the understanding of what causes the cohabitation effect, and its clinical implications.

Elizur, Yoel (2012): Development and Dissemination of Collaborative Family-Oriented Services: The Case of Community/Day Residential Care in Israel. In: Family Process 51 (1): S. 140-156.

abstract: The initiation, development, and dissemination of family-oriented programs are a unifying thread that highlights family therapy‘s contribution to the fields of mental/physical health and social services. These demanding tasks require an ecosystemic vision, a supportive larger context, and a range of skills. This article delineates the evolution of community and day residential care in Israel by examining processes at different ecological levels: the formulation and implementation of national social policy, the follow-up of two family-oriented facilities, one of which thrived while the other eventually closed, and the residential care provided to 1 family with 3 children. The analysis of this multilevel data highlights 4 facilitating/obstructing factors that have had major impact on family-oriented programs: support by both national and local sociopolitical–professional administration, program‘s management autonomy, staff training, support and development, and effective facility leadership that establishes and nurtures family-oriented organizational structure and culture.
