Hafen, McArthur Jr. & D. Russell Crane (2003): When marital interaction and intervention researchers arrive at different points of view: the active listening controversy. In: Journal of Family Therapy 25(1), S. 4-14

abstract: In 1998, John Gottman and his associates published an article which asserted that training 'active listening' between couples was an ineffective therapeutic intervention. Not surprisingly, this claim generated considerable controversy, particularly in relation to treatment and educational models that were heavily dependent on active listening as a major part of their intervention programmes. The authors of one such approach, the Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program (PREP), were particularly vocal in their disagreement with Gottman's conclusions. This paper provides an account of the controversy, a summary of the current status of the debate and a discussion of the remaining unanswered questions.

Doyle, Mairead, Alan Carr, Stephen Rowen, Paudie Galvin, Sheila Lyons & Gerry Cooney (2003): Family-oriented treatment for people with alcohol problems in Ireland: a comparison of the effectiveness of residential and community-based programmes. In: Journal of Family Therapy 25(1), S. 15-40

abstract: Using a naturalistic design involving consecutive referrals self-selected for family-oriented treatment, forty-two participants from a residential programme and twenty-five participants from a community-based programme were assessed on a range of alcohol-use and psychosocial measures before treatment. A proportion of these cases were assessed after treatment and at six months'follow-up. At six months' follow-up 79 per cent of both the residential and community groups were either abstinent or drinking moderately. However, more members of the residential group (75 per cent) were abstinent at follow-up compared with the community group (36 per cent). In contrast, more members of the community group were moderate drinkers (43 per cent) at follow-up compared with the residential group (4 per cent). At six months' follow-up, compared with the community group, more members of the residential group showed a clinically significant reduction in recent negative consequences of drinking and psychological adjustment problems. Both groups made significant mean gains on indices of alcohol abuse and psychosocial adjustment but there were important intergroup differences. The residential group showed a greater mean reduction in recent negative consequences from drinking but the community group showed a greater mean reduction in the percentage of days' heavy drinking.

Lemmens, Gilbert M., Saskia Wauters, Magda Heireman, Ivan Eisler, Germain Lietaer & Bernard Sabbe (2003): Beneficial factors in family discussion groups of a psychiatric day clinic: perceptions by the therapeutic team and the families of the therapeutic process. In: Journal of Family Therapy 25(1), S. 41-63

abstract: This paper reports a pilot investigation of the perception of helpful events by the therapeutic team and the families in two family discussion groups (FDGs) of a psychiatric day clinic. All participants of the FDG, including therapists and observers, filled in questionnaires measuring events helpful for the individual, for the family and for the group after each FDG session. The results showed that the therapeutic team and the families diverged in their overall perception of which factors were important in family discussion group therapy. The therapeutic team saw the relational climate and the structural aspects of the group (including group involvement and support from the group), and specific therapeutic interventions as more helpful than the families. The process aspects in the group members (including the experiencing of communality and gaining insight) were, on the other hand, more frequently mentioned by the families than by the therapeutic team. The clinical implications of these findings and suggestions for future research are discussed.

Roy-Chowdhury, Sim (2003): Knowing the unknowable: what constitutes evidence in family therapy? In: Journal of Family Therapy 25(1), S. 64-85

abstract: Contemporary family therapy theorists have shown an interest in narrative metaphors and sought to situate systemic therapy within the terms of postmodernist, and specifically social constructionist discourses. By this fact a challenge is presented to the researcher: how to rigorously evaluate theoretical propositions while employing a methodology that is congruent with the assumptive base of family therapy. This paper represents an attempt to rise to this challenge. A research study is presented that seeks to subject family therapy theory to systematic scrutiny while avoiding the importation of a philosophical framework that is out of step with the roots that sustain this theory. Transcripts of family therapy sessions are subjected to a discursive analysis in order to demonstrate the actual enactment of theoretical premises in therapy and the effects upon all participants. The findings are discussed in relation to the adequacy of available explanatory frameworks and the implications for the researching of this form of psychotherapeutic activity are explored.

Guanipa, Carmen (2003): Sharing a multicultural course design for a marriage and family therapy programme: one perspective. In: Journal of Family Therapy 25(1), S. 86-106

abstract: The marriage and family therapy (MFT) field has made tremendous progress in acknowledging the importance of multicultural training. Nevertheless, multiculturally committed MFT trainers still struggle with issues of multicultural course design and delivery. In a subject so controversial and which requires a great deal of experience and skills to teach, little has been done in terms of sharing different multicultural course designs and working towards their implementation in MFT programmes. This paper presents a prototype curriculum of an introductory course in multiculturism in counselling for marriage and family therapy students with the overall goal of making trainees more multiculturally aware. It includes a few examples of strategies designed to aid the continuing infusion of multiculturalism into MFT programmes.
