Abstract

The use of teams in family therapy has become quite common. Various methods of employing teams have been experimented with over the years. One of the most recent of these models of team work is that of the reflecting team developed by the Norwegian psychiatrist Tom Andersen, The model described by Andersen forms the basis of the model described here. The model described here, however, differs in three significant ways. This model does not avoid attempts at instrumentality, it sees the therapy as more extensive than the method or medium, and it expands of the use of feedback from the family. The authors provide a rationale for these departures from the reflecting team. A case example is presented which illustrates the use of this model of therapy which the authors call the interacting team.
