Flaskas, Carmel (2007): Holding hope and hopelessness: therapeutic engagements with the balance of hope. In: Journal of Family Therapy 29(3), S. 186-202
abstract: Hope and hopelessness are coexisting and powerful experiences in the human condition. The dynamics of hope and hopelessness within intimate relationships are complex, and individual and family experiences of hope and hopelessness are embedded within historical contexts and wider social processes. This article rests on a relational set of understandings about hope and hopelessness, and offers a dual exploration. It focuses first on the complexities of the patterns of hope and hopelessness within families, and then on the complexities of the therapist's relationship to hope and hopelessness and the family's experience. Orienting to the balance of hope in constellations of hope and hopelessness provides one compass point of therapeutic practice. Reflective practice enables the use of the therapist's involvement in the therapeutic relationship, and helps the therapist to witness the coexistence of hope and hopelessness in a way that nurtures hope and emotionally holds both hope and hopelessness.
Lord, Susan A. (2007): Systemic work with clients with a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder. In: Journal of Family Therapy 29(3), S. 203-221
abstract: Clients who are diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder are likely to engage with clinicians in compelling ways. They challenge us with an urgency that helps us to define ourselves as we work with them. They confront us with the limitations of our treatment approaches, requiring a genuineness of interaction and a flexibility that can be both challenging and uncomfortable. While therapists have made great strides over the past few decades in their treatment approaches with this population, there is a gap in the literature on the use of systemic approaches with these clients. This article examines some of the issues that arise in work with people with a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder and offers an application of a larger systems perspective to the development of viable treatment options for these clients.
Jones, Fiona & Mary Morris (2007): Working with child sexual abuse: a systemic perspective on whether children need to tell their therapist details of the abuse for healing to take place. In: Journal of Family Therapy 29(3), S. 222-237
abstract: As clinicians working with children who have been sexually abused we have observed that many children choose not to give the therapist a detailed account of their abuse.1 Our hypothesis is that whether or not children tell their story to the therapist hinges upon several factors: whether they have been believed by their significant (non-abusing) carer(s); their developmental stage; the therapeutic context; and whether they feel their therapist is available to hear the distressing details of the abuse. We explore this through two case studies and conclude that while children's ability to use therapy is affected by multiple factors - societal, cultural, personal, life histories and beliefs about the value of therapy - telling their therapist the details of their abusive experiences is not necessarily a part of effective therapy.
Lee, Linnet & Sophie Littlejohns (2007): Deconstructing Agnes - externalization in systemic supervision. In: Journal of Family Therapy 29(3), S. 238-248
abstract: Externalization is seen in this paper as a valid and useful part of the process of clinical supervision in systemic family therapy training. We offer a discussion on the use of externalization based on an example from a supervision group on a London M.Sc. in Family Therapy. Externalizing practices are located in the context of a postmodern perspective and narrative ideas within systemic family therapy. We explore the use of narrative ideas and the recursive relationship between theory, practice and the subjective experience of the trainee, within the practice of systemic supervision.
Ben-Daniel, Natella, R. Rokach, L. Filtzer & R. Feldman (2007): When two are a family: looking backward and looking forward in a group intervention with single-by-choice mothers. In: Journal of Family Therapy 29(3), S. 249-266
abstract: Objective: We describe a preventive short-term group intervention with nine single-by-choice (SBC) mothers to provide maximal support for parental functioning and to minimize possible emotional and/or developmental difficulties in their children. Method: Dynamically oriented group work (fifteen one-and-a-half-hour sessions) focused on: elaboration of painful experiences in the peri-natal period; reducing stress, tension and guilt; helping mothers with problematic aspects of parenting through work on parental self-image and perceptions of the child and the dyadic interaction; and strengthening their acceptance of the chosen family model. Results: Therapeutic gains described by mothers and facilitators include: reduced tension, anxiety and guilt; improved integration of the mother's parental self-image and perception of the child; reduced ambivalence in dyadic relationships; strengthening the mother's fantasized triadic relationships; better acceptance of chosen family pattern; mothers' willingness to tell children their birth story. Conclusion: Dynamically oriented preventive group intervention with SBC mothers can identify potential psychological risk factors and help mothers with sensitive aspects of parenting.
Pakes, Kirsty & Sim Roy-Chowdhury (2007): Culturally sensitive therapy? Examining the practice of cross-cultural family therapy. In: Journal of Family Therapy 29(3), S. 267-283
abstract: This article is drawn from a research project that examines cross-cultural family therapy sessions in order to consider what constitutes culturally sensitive practice. A discourse analytic approach was adopted in the analysis of three sessions from two families where the family and the therapists originated from different ethnic backgrounds. This article is based around part of the research findings connected to one of the families, and focuses upon the ways in which culture is talked about in therapy (the term culture will be referred to in inverted commas in order to acknowledge its complexity as is emphasized in this article). This allows for an examination of the cultural assumptions that we hold as therapists, which are enacted in therapy with effects on all participants and upon the course of the therapy. The value of qualitative research methods in examining the cultural assumptions we bring to therapy is highlighted as one way of improving culturally sensitive therapeutic practice, especially with regard to therapist reflexivity.
