Example text

As we will see later, reflexivity is based upon a set of underlying premises or beliefs that we hold and these may function in a self-fulfilling way so that problems are maintained or even aggravated. Family coordination through communication Returning to a biological metaphor, systems theorists suggested that the body could be seen as a set of components which operated together in an integrated and coordinated way to maintain stability (see also homeostasis, p. 35). The coordination was seen to be achieved through communication between the components or parts of the system.

This observation in itself is an active process and different observers may see different patterns, for example at different levels of the biological system – its behaviour, overall macroscopic structure, microscopic structure, chemical and electrical activity and so on. It is possible to list further differences but these point to some important issues, perhaps one of the most fundamental being that mechanical systems are fully determined and predictable, whereas with biological systems we can only develop hypotheses or inferences.

There are topic-specific reading lists (not exhaustive), and guides to such things as first and last sessions in therapy, which we have called formats for exploration, as they are our adaptation of core systemic ideas to our practice and therapy, not specific skills associated with a particular model and concept. We have compiled a glossary of terms used throughout the book. The two articles in the postscript are historical markers (2005) that we offer 16 An introduction to family therapy both as gifts to readers and as relevant punctuations in time for this second edition.
