Sample text

How one can have strong beliefs without hying to force them on others becomes the therapist's challenge. Searching for pathology is useless-rather, by means of circular questioning, seek out the implications of prejudices. Be curious about patterns not "facts". For further elaboration of the concept of circular questioning see Cecchin (1987) and Palazzoli, Boscolo, Cecchin, and Prata (1980). i. Be useful, not helpful In general, we believe that to be useful is not the same as to be helpful. This means that, at times, not being helpful is very useful.

Should such a belief be challenged or bolstered? When one is able to deconstruct one's own mythologies of change, therapy, and influence, then one is free to engage the client in a lively, ironic, and irreverent improvisational interaction. This is the essence of a post-ideological orientation in therapy. Our movement into a post-ideological orientation came primarily from the irreverence of our clients. Clients, by and large, are far less inhibited than therapists. Our attempts to free ourselves from the temptation of belief in our ability to evoke change in a predictive way is helped tremendously by these clients.

Hours of persuasion were necessary to bring the therapist to adopt a position, at least temporarily, that the girl needed to continue her role as a daughter, which she knew how to do very well, and which was continually reinforced by the parents (and had inadvertently been reinforced by the therapist's symbolic symmetrical competition with the parents by giving messages that becoming independent was better than remaining a daughter). Possibly, the insistence on the part of the therapist that she become more independent was being interpreted by the client as an invitation to betray her parents, which as a good daughter she could never do.
