  • Depuis près de quarante ans, le génogramme s'impose comme un outil majeur de la thérapie systémique. Les auteurs de cet ouvrage, des spécialistes européens internationalement reconnus, en interrogent l'évolution face aux enjeux sociétaux contemporains. Tous s'appuient sur les codes traditionnels de cette technique pour la réinventer et l'adapter à leur pratique clinique.
    Ainsi, le génogramme devient chronogrammique, génographique, en fleurs, en boutons, tricolore, imaginaire, paysager, mobile, photographique, métaphorique, inversé, digital... Les formes et pictogrammes évoluent pour s'adapter à tous les sujets et à leurs situations : gérontologie, handicap, violence, migration, familles homoparentales, formation professionnelle, relations virtuelles, maladies génétiques, thérapie individuelle ou familiale...

    Un ouvrage vivifiant et inspirant pour les professionnels en quête de créativité, qui invite au renouvellement des leviers thérapeutiques.

  • In this powerful volume, six qualitative methods are used to analyze a couple therapy with a troubled young couple, illustrating the intricate processes and sub-processes of therapy through client interactions with their therapists and with each other. Increasingly popular for revealing the nuances and complexity of human interactions, qualitative approaches focus on process and discursive methods which can be particularly rewarding in multi-client settings. Through the examples that make up the text, practitioners and researchers become better acquainted  with the power of qualitative perspectives and are encouraged to examine their own views on therapy as they consider these and other concepts:
    The development of dialogical space in a couple therapy session.
    Introducing novelties into therapeutic dialogue: the importance of minor shifts of the therapist.
    Therapists' responses for enhancing change through dialogue: dialogical investigations of change.
    Fostering dialogue: exploring the therapists' discursive contributions in a couple therapy.
    Dominant story, power, and positioning.
    Constructing the moral order of a relationship in couples therapy.
    Research Perspectives in Couple Therapy: Discursive Qualitative Methods ably demonstrates the balance between therapeutic art and science for family and couples therapists, psychologists, and other mental health professionals in research and practice.

  • The founding volume of the European Family Therapy Association book series presents new ideas confirming the crucial importance of systemic family therapy for family practice.
    Spanning paradigms, models, concepts, applications, and implications for families as they develop, experts in the field demonstrate the translatability of session insights into real-world contexts, bolstering therapeutic gains outside the treatment setting. Chapters emphasize the potential for systemic family therapy as integrative across theories, healing disciplines, modes of treatment, while contributors' personal perspectives provide unique takes on the therapist's role. Together, these papers promote best practices not only for therapy, but also research and training as professionals delve deeper into understanding the complexity and diversity of families and family systems. 
    at the heart of innovative clinical practice. o Steps to an ultramodern family therapy.o From networks to resonance: the life journey of a family therapist.o How to give a voice to children in family therapy.o Systemic theory and narratives of attachment: integration, formulation, and development over time.o Virtual relations and globalized families: the Genogram 4.0 interview.

  • This book examines systemic family therapy research, addressing key topics across the interrelated disciplines of psychotherapy, social work, and counseling. Drawing from contributions at the 2017 International Systemic Research Conference in Heidelberg, it includes both quantitative and qualitative research perspectives and outlines a wide array of approaches, using systems theory and constructivist epistemology. In addition, the book focuses on innovative paradigms, research strategies, and methods, seeking to bridge the gap between research and practice in the field of systemic family therapy. Finally, it provides guidance on submitting and maximizing the likelihood of research paper acceptance to leading family therapy journals.

    Topics featured in this book include:Effectiveness of research-informed systemic therapy.Mindfulness and compassion-based interventions in relational contexts.Use of SCORE (Systemic Clinical Outcome and Routine Evaluation) as an indicator of family functioning in Europe.Systemic approaches for working with couples with high conflict behaviors.Therapeutic-Factor-Oriented skill building in systemic counseling.Importance of client feedback in development of professional knowledge base.

  • This book examines innovative approaches to the use of qualitative methods in mental health research. It describes the development and use of methods of data collection and analysis designed. These methods address contemporary and interdisciplinary research questions, such as how to access the voices of vulnerable populations, understand the relationship between experience and discourse, and identify processes and patterns that characterize institutional practices. The book offers insight into projects that reflect various cultural contexts and geographical locations as well as involve diverse research teams, ranging in their methodology from individual case studies to community-based interventions.Chapters address how research method selection needs to be tailored to specific contexts within which studies are carried out and how synthesizing diverse perspectives of different disciplines - such as psychology, sociology, linguistics, history, and art - make a research endeavor more fruitful. The book offers a clear framework in which to assess the research presented in the book as well as map future directions for qualitative methodology in mental health research.Key areas of coverage include projects that describe research with:
    o Individuals confronted with critical life events.
    o Former psychiatric patients.
    o Individual and couple psychotherapy clients.
    o Clients in a forensic setting.
    o Persons affected by psychosis.
    o Dementia patients.
    o People living with cancer.
    o Health care professionals. Qualitative Research Methods in Mental Health is a valuable resource for researchers, professors, and graduate students as well as therapists and other professionals in clinical and counseling psychology, psychotherapy, social work, and family therapy as well as all interrelated psychology and medical disciplines.
