Complexity in Psychotherapeutic Contexts: A Semiotic Perspective on Clinical Styles.

A/Prof. David G. Butt

This talk presents an analysis of the styles of three leading exponents of the Hobson/ Meares approach to the complexities of psychotherapeutic interactions. The descriptions of technique, or ‘style’, presented here are drawn from a collaboration between those working in the Conversational Model and linguists trying to ascertain the semantic methods developed in the model. 

“Style” is a fundamental dimension of all meaning bearing behaviours. It is not a superficial veneer, but the way a therapist takes up the choices available to her or him when the context is a) complex, b) changing in the moment, c) precipitous, and d) apparently unscripted. By analysing the “style” of leading proponents, our aim is to offer further evidence for clinicians to interpret, especially with respect to: 1) the choices that distinguish the Conversational approach; 2) the ways in which theory is enacted in practice; and 3) the waves of complexity which the therapist must navigate.
