Walters, Jennifer, Fiona Tasker & Sheila Bichard (2001): "Too busy"? Father's attendance for family appointments. In: Journal of Family Therapy 23(1), S. 03-20

abstract: Fathers are often less likely to attend for appointments with their referred children at family and child psychiatry clinics than are mothers. The literature related to this topic is examined. A study of fathers' attendance at family sessions is reported, in which attenders are compared to non-attenders. It is concluded that conventional suppositions regarding fathers' attendance, such as work hours and family roles, are not as important predictors of fathers' attendance as fathers' relationships with their own fathers and current relationships with their partners. Clinical implications are examined.

Dienhart, Anna (2001): Engaging men in family therapy: does the gender of the therapist make a difference? In: Journal of Family Therapy 23(1), S. 21-45

abstract: The results of this exploratory Delphi study provide a beginning formulation of a gender-sensitive approach to working with men in the specialized field of couple and family therapy. The research specifically investigated what a panel of thirty-six 'expert' family therapists believed would be appropriate and effective techniques to engage men in therapy and in the process of family change. This report focuses on findings highlighting differences between what female and male therapists preferred as techniques to work with men in family therapy.

Reimers, Sigurd (2001): Understanding alliances. How can research inform user-friendly practice? In: Journal of Family Therapy 23(1), S. 46-62

abstract: 'User-friendliness' is described as a therapist stance which involves attentiveness to the quality of the 'therapeutic relationship', both between therapist and family and between service providers and their public. This article draws on research published in the last seven years from within and outside the family therapy field which can help improve this relationship. I will argue that the issues which challenge user-friendly practice need to be related to the theories which inform family therapy and to the traditional tension within the research field between focusing on measurable outcomes or on user satisfaction. The urgency for a clear analysis of what can make family therapy practice more sensitive to its public comes partly from the relative state of maturity which family therapy has now reached and its need actively to work alongside other approaches. Other crucial influences considered are a greater public demand for choice and improvements in public services, and social policy trends towards greater efficiency and accountability within the helping services.

Birtchnell, John (2001): Relating therapy with individuals, couples and families. In: Journal of Family Therapy 23(1), S. 63-84

abstract: This paper introduces a theoretical system within which relating behaviour may be defined, classified and measured. It is emphasized that a person both relates to and is related to by others. Relating may be of a positive or negative kind, and it is argued that the object of psychotherapy is both to eliminate the person's negative relating and enable the person to tolerate the negative relating of others. The term 'interrelating' is used to refer to the combination of relating and being related to of two people. Couple therapy is aimed at correcting the negative interrelating of partners, and family therapy is aimed at improving the interrelating of pairs of family members. A set of questionnaires based upon the theoretical system is introduced. These measure the negative relating of individuals and negative interrelating between individuals, and are proposed as useful adjuncts to individual, couple and family therapy.

Vetere, Arlene & Mavis Henley (2001): Integrating couples and family therapy into a community alcohol service: a pantheoretical approach. In: Journal of Family Therapy 23(1), S. 85-101

abstract: This paper discusses the contribution of family systems theory and therapy to mainstream alcohol treatment programmes. Systemic psychotherapy is integrated with group analytic psychotherapy in a couples and family therapy service within a community alcohol service (CAS) which uses the Prochaska and Diclemente model of stages of change. Problems and solutions in putting these complex ideas into practice are discussed, with specific reference to issues of engagement. An example of our work with a couple is offered to illustrate our weave of theory and practice.

Vivian-Byrne, Susan Elizabeth (2001): What am I doing here? Safety, certainty and expertise in a secure unit. In: Journal of Family Therapy 23(1), S. 102-116

abstract: This paper focuses on the potential for using systemic ideas in a forensic mental health unit. It suggests that doing so aids our understanding of common dilemmas, and that it promotes our ability to generate new perspectives when facing a therapeutic impasse. It illustrates some common dilemmas by reference to particular individuals detained in this setting, and examines the limitations of ideas popular in current systemic practice in a context where extremes of clinical experience and theoretical positions are apparent. In particular it explores the role of 'therapist' in a system defined by a medico-legal model and the implications this has for concepts such as responsibility, reality, illness and risk. It specifically attempts to illustrate the perceived usefulness of ideas put forward by Mason (1993) about safety and certainty. The art of balance between clinical and forensic perspectives emerges as extremely significant in managing the many complex and demanding issues which need to be dealt with in this context.
