Blackburn, Pennie J. (2010): Creating space for preferred identities: narrative practice conversations about gender and culture in the context of trauma. In: Journal of Family Therapy 32 (1): S. 4-26.

abstract: This paper describes a narrative approach to work with the effects of extreme trauma and forced migration. It describes an approach to work across cultures in cases in which the culturally informed dominant discourses have shaped the effects of the trauma on those that survived them. The paper sets out the stories of two women as exemplars of the complexities of such practice. Examples of the main forms of narrative practice conversations are given and the work is developed through considerations of ways in which therapists can work respectfully between cultures.

Charlés, Laurie L. (2010): Family therapists as front line mental health providers in war-affected regions: using reflecting teams, scaling questions, and family members in a hospital in Central Africa. In: Journal of Family Therapy 32 (1): S. 27-42.

abstract: This paper will illustrate the utilization of systemic family therapy services inside a hospital in a war-affected region of the Central African Republic. Through an international non-governmental organization (NGO), the author, a family therapist, provided counselling supervision and services to hospital staff and patients in an area of open conflict in the northern region of the country. In circumstances of chronic insecurity fuelled by both government and rebel forces, families displaced in this region are vulnerable to numerous health conditions and social problems. Family therapy techniques and ideas were used to work with individuals, couples and families presenting with health and social problems resulting from HIV-TB, infections, chronic malnutrition, acute poisoning and beliefs about sorcery. Case examples illustrate the systems consultation model used with the mental health team in order to expand and promote the sustainability of patient mental healthcare in this underserved region.

Mendenhall, Tai J. & Jerica M. Berge (2010): Family therapists in trauma-response teams: bringing systems thinking into interdisciplinary fieldwork. In: Journal of Family Therapy 32 (1): S. 43-57.

abstract: Attention to the mental health facets of disaster-preparedness and trauma-response teams has increased considerably over the past decade. As family therapists take part in these efforts, they bring with them a worldview that adds valuable contributions to the nature in which fieldwork is conducted and the manners in which interdisciplinary teams function on the ground. In this article, we present how systems thinking sensitizes trauma workers to a variety of clinical presentations and biopsychosocial complexities inherent in this work. We describe common clinical- and practice-related challenges, alongside practical strategies for effectively dealing with these challenges. We draw upon our experiences as family therapists trained in the field of trauma, and our work as field responders, supervisors and team leaders across a variety of local and large-scale disaster events and contexts.

McHugh, Brenda, Neil Dawson, Anthony Scrafton & Eia Asen (2010): ‘Hearts on their sleeves’: the use of systemic biofeedback in school settings. In: Journal of Family Therapy 32 (1): S. 58-72.

abstract: This article describes how a biofeedback device is used to ‘externalize’ internal physiological states. Heart rate monitors, emitting audible signals when a specific threshold is reached, are fitted to children and members of the family. This can help all those present to make connections between problematic behaviours and internal states of emotional/physical arousal. Devices may be worn for up to twenty-four hours and computer graph printouts of fluctuating heart rates can assist in contextualizing problematic interactions, particularly if other family members are also fitted with heart rate monitors. In this way biofeedback becomes ‘systemic’ as people are alerted to the interconnectedness of each others’ states. Participants are not only helped to identify stressors leading to heightened states of emotional arousal and resulting ‘out-of-control’ behaviours, but also to find ways of employing (self-)calming strategies. This article outlines the application of systemic biofeedback in school settings with children at risk of exclusion. With the help of these biofeedback devices pupils begin to manage themselves in situations which would previously have resulted in stressed, angry or violent behaviours.

Haydon-Laurelut, Mark & Karl Nunkoosting (2010): ‘I want to be listened to’: systemic psychotherapy with a man with intellectual disabilities and his paid supporters. In: Journal of Family Therapy 32 (1): S. 73-86.

abstract: This paper contends that the systemic approach can be useful in working with adults with intellectual disabilities and their relational network, including paid care services. A practice example using a systemic approach with a man with intellectual disabilities and his paid supporters showed a movement from an internal description of the problem as existing in the man with intellectual disabilities to a focus on coordinating the relationship between the man and his paid supporters. The authors argue for the utility of the systemic approach in working with those who live and work in services for people with intellectual disabilities and who may not have had access to these kinds of conversation in the past.
