Burck, Charlotte (2004): Living in several languages: implications for therapy. In: Journal of Family Therapy 26(4), S. 314-339

abstract: Bilingualism and multilingualism have mainly been neglected in psychotherapy. This paper is based on qualitative research of subjective experiences of living in more than one language, using a combined grounded theory and discursive approach, which raises significant issues for therapy. These individuals experience themselves very differently in their different languages, and construct their languages differently. Languages acquire meanings in socio-political contexts as well as in local personal ones, and encode different concepts and notions of personhood. Issues of language choice within families and what it is seen to accomplish are discussed. Mothers and fathers view this issue differently. The paper argues for the importance of taking into account the differences languages bring for individuals, particularly in the context of colonialism and racism. Asking about families' experiences of their languages is a fruitful way to explore cultural meanings. Multilingualism is a resource for mental flexibility and creativity, but there are challenges in enabling living with its multiplicities.

Ramon, Karamat Ali (2004): Bilingualism and systemic psychotherapy: some formulations and explorations. In: Journal of Family Therapy 26(4), S. 340-357

abstract: Bilingualism has risen dramatically due to increased migration patterns all over the world. This paper offers an overview of the current literature dealing specifically with bi- and multilingualism, and identifies a gap in systemic and family therapy literature about the subject of bilingualism. In the light of this, the author proposes a working definition of bilingual families. Some case examples illustrate different aspects of working systemically with a bilingual family and highlight potential challenges for a therapist, such as the assumption of more knowledge and expertise. The tools suggested relate to a rethinking of some modernist ideas regarding hypothesizing, and both the use of a social constructionist perspective and of self of the (bilingual) family therapist. A case is made for the exploration of meanings of difference including the lingua-cultural one. The author ends with a plea to start including more specific cultural issues such as bilingualism in systemic therapy practice.

Seltzer, Michael & Wencke J. Seltzer (2004): Co-texting, chronotope and ritual: a Bakhtinian framing of talk in therapy. In: Journal of Family Therapy 26(4), S. 358-383

abstract: This article employs a set of concepts developed by Mikhail Bakhtin in analysing the significance of language in therapeutic work. Employing his theoretical constructs, sequences of a videotaped transcript of a therapy session are analysed by a multidisciplinary team. This is combined with the notion of co-texted ritual in working with a woman who attempted suicide prior to this session. The findings suggest that co-texting gives direction to the meaning of ritual as well as the outcome of the therapeutic process. Bakhtinian concepts are found to be helpful in guiding, analysing and widening therapeutic processes. The findings also indicate that there is a need for a closer examination of ritual both as a constitutive and expanding force in narrative therapy. Finally, it is suggested that current assumptions about egalitarian relationships between therapists and clients require rethinking.

Androutsopoulou, Athena, Kia Thanopoulou, Efi Economou & Tsabika Bafiti (2004): Forming criteria for assessing the coherence of clients' life stories: a narrative study. In: Journal of Family Therapy 26(4), S. 384-406

abstract: Promoting self-narrative coherence is seen in this paper as one of the key tasks in therapy. In our narrative study, we attempted to form specific coding criteria for assessing coherence based on the intelligibility of 'life stories'. Thirty clients ('graduates' and beginners) in family-oriented group therapy took part. We conducted an informal autobiographical interview and asked clients to write a self-description. Our qualitative analysis focused mainly on narrative form. We created a coding system of four coding criteria, 'acknowledging/explaining contradictions', 'thinking in a relational manner', 'acknowledging/responding to the needs of the audience', and 'being in touch with emotions'. The latter criterion was further explored and a secondary coding system developed for the emotional assessment of narratives. Two case studies are used as exemplars. The variations as to the degree of self-narrative incoherence are discussed. Proposals are made for using the four coding criteria as a 'subjective' assessment tool for monitoring therapy progress.

Byrne, Michael, Alan Carr & Marie Clark (2004): Power in relationships of women with depression. In: Journal of Family Therapy 26(4), S. 407-429

abstract: To identify marital power difficulties specifically associated with depression, twenty couples in which the female partner was depressed were compared on a range of interpersonal power variables with twenty healthy control couples and also with twenty couples in which the female partner had a disorder other than depression (specifically panic disorder with agoraphobia (PDA)). Couples in the depressed group had two features that distinguished them from couples in both the PDA and control groups and which were independent of relationship dissatisfaction. In the depressed group, both partners reported more physical assault in the year prior to the study and depressed women were more dissatisfied with their control of surplus spending money. Couples in the depressed group had a series of features that distinguished them from couples in both the PDA and control groups but which were due in part to relationship dissatisfaction. Depressed women were less committed to their relationships. Both partners in depressed couples reported more demand-withdraw transactions and less mutual constructive communication within their relationships. Depressed women reported more dissatisfaction with decision-making and greater dissatisfaction in childcare task distribution.
