Jenkins, Hugh (2006): Inside out, or outside in: meeting with couples. In: Journal of Family Therapy 28(2), S. 113-135.

abstract: The complex difficulties often faced by couples require a range of models for effective help. Relational intensity is heightened in therapy by the ease with which the therapist can be triangled into the couple's relationship and by the influence of the emotional triggers from their respective internal worlds. This article draws on systemic and psychodynamic models and a transgenerational perspective for gendered stories. Different time frameworks link interpersonal and intrapersonal themes. In this sense, the therapist works 'inside out' and 'outside in'. A framework of behaviours, emotions, feelings, meanings and beliefs is proposed to help link these perspectives. 'Invisible contracts' and the sense of there often being an unconscious 'pact to disappoint' are described. Clear models are not enough, for it is the intimate encounter between client and therapist that is the bedrock of therapeutic change and growth. There is no short cut to this sense of intimacy in the unique encounter between therapist and each new couple. Brief examples from practice describe how the issues discussed may be addressed in couples work.

Lundblad, Ann-Marie & Kjell Hansson (2006): Couples therapy: effectiveness of treatment and long-term follow-up. In: Journal of Family Therapy 28(2), S. 136-152.

abstract: Most couples therapy theories are developed and tested in the USA. In this clinical study, we investigated such therapies in a Swedish context. Over 300 couples were enrolled in the study of whom just under half completed the end-of-treatment assessment and just over 40 per cent a two-year follow-up. At the start, the study group displayed severe problems in marital adjustment, dyadic interactions and psychiatric symptoms. A relatively short treatment was used and 50 per cent of the couples attended less than nine sessions. Outcomes of treatment showed significant improvements in relationship matters, individual mental health and enhanced coping abilities. At long-term follow-up, all results remained the same and in some aspects improved for both sexes. This study confirms the effectiveness of such therapies in a Swedish context.

Roy-Chowdhury, Sim (2006): How is the therapeutic relationship talked into being? In: Journal of Family Therapy 28(2), S. 153-174.

abstract: A review of the place of the therapeutic relationship within systemic approaches to therapy is provided. This serves to contextualize the findings of a research study that subjects therapy sessions to a discursive analysis. The purpose of the analysis is to learn more about the therapeutic relationship through an examination of what actually takes place in sessions. Moments in therapy where therapeutic engagement is stronger and moments when it is weaker are identified and analysed. The discursive contours of a robust therapeutic relationship are highlighted. A theoretical account of the constituents of a stronger therapeutic relationship is constructed from this analysis.

Perlesz, Amaryll, Rhonda Brown, Jo Lindsay, Ruth McNaird, David de Vause & Marian Pitts (2006): Family in transition: parents, children and grandparents in lesbian families give meaning to 'doing family'. In: Journal of Family Therapy 28(2), S. 175-199.

abstract: Lesbian parents, their children and grandparents 'do family' in rich and diverse ways. This article draws on innovative grounded theory research using qualitative, multi-generational family interviews with twenty lesbian-parented families living in Victoria, Australia. The intersection between the public and the private in lesbian family life has been seriously neglected by family researchers, and in particular the perspectives of family members other than the lesbian parents themselves. This article addresses the question of 'How members of lesbian-parented families define and describe their family', and the results reported here focus on children's and grandparents' views, because they are the voices less well represented in the literature. Children and grandparents straddle both mainstream and marginalized spaces as they negotiate contemporary family life. We examine the interface and tensions between the traditional and the transformative, and the implications of these findings for family therapists are briefly discussed.

Voulgaridou, Maria G., Renos K. Tomaras & Vlassis Papadopoulos (2006): Working with refugee families in Greece: systemic considerations. In: Journal of Family Therapy 28(2), S. 200-220.

abstract: When refugee families leave their country of origin, they may also leave behind their culture and support systems but not their abilities to overcome the emerging adversities. This article addresses issues concerning the process of refugee families' 'acculturation' and adaptation to their new setting in Greek society. It attempts to develop culture-sensitive approaches to family therapy based on narrative perspectives and inspired by Pike's '-emic and -etic' distinction. It discusses the innovative methods developed by the therapeutic team of the Greek Council for Refugees which included the use of 'cultural therapeutic mediators' and others in an endeavour to access the overlapping systems of refugee families in more effective ways.
