Conceptualizing cases: Identifying Interpersonal Patterns

Joni808
The list author says: "The following books guide the practitioner in ways to develop conceptualizing skills using an interpersonal lens. Levenson, Binder, Luborsky, and Book identify the interpersonal pattern in individual therapy. Yalom uses the group experience to identify interpersonal patterns being played out in the here-and-now with group leaders and the members. Luborsky’s text also highlights looking at observing dysfunctional patterns in sessions during family/couple sessions. Whether you call it Core Conflictual Relationship Theme (CCRT, Luborsky) or Cyclical Maladaptive Pattern (CMP, Levenson and Binder) the main point of all of these texts is to identify the self-defeating pattern(s) that were once adaptive (for example in one’s family of origin) but may now no longer be needed."

"Levenson makes the reader a part of her supervision group.  The reader can imagine him/herself as a member of the group and participate in formulating the CMP as each client's vignette unfolds.  She includes a variety of  vignettes illustrating differing CMP’s so readers can familiarize themselves with formulating different CMP’s."

"I read this book after Levenson’s which helped me to quickly understand the concepts that Yalom described.  One could apply Levenson’s model of conceptualizing to each individual in the group—using the data from external stories shared and enactments that occur in the group session."

"Help construct/identify and expand the client’s situation/problem/theme. Then deconstruct the theme by highlighting ambiguities, gaps, contradictions, misinterpretations, and distortions.  Binder encourages practitioners to use common sense to compare the client’s perspectives of a situation with what is a healthy picture--highlighting the parts of the client’s narrative that don’t make sense/fit."
