Example text

Sometimes an unsuccessful intervention can be just as useful in the long run, since it can elucidate much about the family and its members. On no account should therapists blame the family or become angry with them. Therapists should accept responsibility for any failure. “The task was set too soon or was too difficult”, “The experiment was poorly designed” and “The family is not ready for it yet” are some good ways to avoid blaming the family. Therapists should ‘role model’ how to deal with failures, which are part of life.

When the speaker has finished talking, the listener can be asked to repeat what was said in his/her own words. This is a good check on how well or badly family members are communicating with each other. Each person’s point of view, however poorly expressed, should be valued by the therapists. This helps everyone to feel that they are contributing to the session. If someone is speaking in a muddled way, the therapists can say that they are not quite clear about the message and ask for clarification.

Before sitting down, if a polite request is made to turn off the television, all families we have ever worked with have done so. Tea and biscuits Some families regularly offer tea or coffee during a session, while with others this may happen from time to time. The therapists should start by assuming that the offer of a hot drink is customary and innocuous. There is usually no harm in accepting, and it may help the family feel that they are doing something to express their gratitude. However, the timing of the offer should be carefully considered.
