Cohesion: Motifs of order and fragmentation in the conversational model (CM) of psychotherapy

A/Prof. David G. Butt , Kristin Khoo

The concept of cohesion has to do considerable theoretical ‘work’ in CM. We first demonstrate this claim by a review drawn from every environment in which the concept is invoked both in the recent manual on Borderline Personality Disorder and in the ‘magnum opus’ of Meares on Dissociation and BPD (both 2012). We evaluate the theoretical weight given to cohesion across all these environments, as well across the contexts in which near synonyms and antonyms are invoked – i.e. all the motifs of order and fragmentation. From this linguistic data, we then move to the challenge of reconciling the role of “cohesion” with our linguistic construal of the CM’s emphasis on “right brain” activity and on the Vygotskyan suggestion of the role of an “associative” and “a-grammatical” language of the mind (Meares et al, 2012:27- ‘Two Forms of Language’). In this step, we accept a challenge put before us by Professor Meares concerning “analogical fit”.
