The Rhythms and Regularities of Psychotherapeutic Discourse:Exploring the linguistic implications of the Conversational Model.

A/Prof. David G. Butt

While the notion of a “conversation” serves to guide the approach of practitioners in the Conversational Model (CM), linguistic investigation demonstrates the ways in which what goes between therapist and patients is both like and unlike other genres of language exchange. One implication of such findings is that therapists respond to the unique conditions of their context with a professional technique which sets them apart from ‘ordinary conversationalists’.

On the other hand, language in therapeutic interaction reflects certain regularities and semantic ‘rhythms’ which build the inter-subjectivity that we do associate with our most valued human relationships.

The Discourse Team includes: David G Butt; Caroline Henderson-Brooks; Alison Moore; Kristin Khoo (Macquarie University); and Russell Meares; Joan Haliburn;  and Anthony Korner (Westmead) along with crucial input from the wider team of psychiatrists at Westmead, and other advisors like Dimitri Melkonian. The Research has been funded by a grant from the National Health and Medical Research Council.
