Street, Eddy (2002): Editorial. In: Journal of Family Therapy 24(1), S. 1-2

Asen, Eia (2002): Multiple family therapy: an overview. In: Journal of Family Therapy 24(1), S. 3-16

abstract: In recent years there has been increased interest in working with groups of families systemically. Multiple family therapy is applied in different settings and to a whole range of different presentations. These include work with multi-problem families; with schools, parents and pupils; with adult mentally ill individuals and their families; and with eating-disordered teenagers and their families. Principles and aims of multiple family therapy are presented, specific projects described and trends for future work outlined.

Colahan, Mireille &
Paul H. Robinson (2002): Multi-family groups in the treatment of young adults with eating disorders. In: Journal of Family Therapy 24(1), S. 17-30

abstract: Multi-family group therapy is a variant of family therapy in which members are able to gain insight and learn from each other, provide support and encouragement, alleviate their sense of isolation and improve communication and social functioning. This study describes a series of multi-family groups conducted within the eating disorder service of a large London NHS Hospital. Ratings made by participants indicated that families viewed the treatment favourably.

Bishop, Peter, Ann Clilverd, Alan Cooklin & Una Hunt (2002): Mental health matters: a multi-family framework for mental health intervention. In: Journal of Family Therapy 24(1), S. 31-45

abstract: This paper reports a collaborative project, developed jointly by a group of community mental health workers in association with a specialist team commissioned to initiate family work throughout a central London mental health provider. The result of this project - The 'Mental Health Matters Workshops' - was a series of day workshops for patients who had experienced a major mental illness, and their families, carers and mental health workers. The positive impact of the workshops on attenders is reported, as well as the development of a 'multi-family' and social network culture.

Moorhouse, Adele & Alan Carr (2002): Gender and conversational behaviour in family therapy and live supervision. In: Journal of Family Therapy 24(1), S. 46-56

abstract: The association between supervisors' and therapists' gender and the conversational behaviour of four supervisors, nineteen trainee family therapists and twenty clients before, during and after eighty-eight live supervisory phone in events were examined in this study. Clients' co-operation was not directly related to the gender of therapists and supervisors. The quality of supervisors' collaborative behaviour was highest for events in systems where male supervisors were supervising male therapists and lowest for events in systems where male supervisors were supervising female therapists. In systems containing female supervisors and male therapists, therapists engaged in frequent collaborative behaviour and less frequent teaching behaviour with their clients. The quality of therapists' collaborative and supportive behaviour was highest in these systems. The unexpected results of this study suggest that the way supervisors interact with therapists and therapists interact with clients does not conform to gender stereotypic conversational behaviour in which males are directive and females affiliative. It may be that individuals whose conversational behaviour does not conform to gender stereotypes decide to become family therapists or that family therapy training helps people develop alternatives to gender-stereotypical conversational behaviour.

Ma, Joyce L.C,
Mina Y.M. Chow, Sing Lee & Kelly Lai (2002): Family meaning of self-starvation: themes discerned in family treatment in Hong Kong. In: Journal of Family Therapy 24(1), S. 57-71

abstract: This study aims to identify themes from the treatment of Chinese families with an adolescent or an adult member suffering from anorexia nervosa (AN), through a multiple case study. This study reveals that self-starvation may be regarded as a cultural metaphor. Four major themes emerged at the family level: self-starvation as an expression of love and control, coalition of the AN daughter with the mother, family loyalty, and the powerlessness and helplessness of the mother. The themes identified are narrative accounts of the Hong Kong Chinese families, rather than causal explanations proposed by Western literature. The emerging themes are believed to be constructed and legitimized by traditional Chinese cultural values, with females being subordinated to and dependent on males and the self being subjugated to or sacrificed for the collective. Treatment implications are discussed.

Miller, Ann C. (2002): Changing the face of the organization: addressing the challenges of work in a multi-ethnic society. In: Journal of Family Therapy 24(1), S. 72-84

abstract: Institutionalized racism constrains therapy organizations in providing just, equitable and useful services for people from the non-dominant groups within our society. While the will to change is often apparent in individuals, many organizations do not manage to do so. This paper maps a model of individual racial identity development (Cross, 1971, 1978, 1981) on to process within organizations, and illustrates organizational change with a case example.

Blow, Kirsten & Gwyn Daniel (2002): Frozen narratives? Post-divorce processes and contact disputes. In: Journal of Family Therapy 24(1), S. 85-103

abstract: The aim of this paper is to explore some interactive processes and constraints as adults and children develop new narratives post-divorce. It will look at how adults' narratives can become more rigid or frozen over time as a result of battles within the legal system, and the effect this can have on children. Dilemmas and contradictions for therapists attempting to bring about change in the context of an assessment will be discussed, as will the challenge of introducing therapeutic 'understanding-based' language into an adversarial system organized around 'evidence-based' language. The therapeutic work described takes place in the context of court assessments of children whose parents are engaged in disputes over contact. Case vignettes will be used to illustrate the processes described, and dilemmas for therapists will be discussed as they position themselves in relation to conflicting narratives.
