Having a Second-Order Mind while Doing First-Order Therapy.
Simon, George M.
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v18 n4 p377-87 Oct 1992
Contends that overemphasis in literature on distinguishing first- and second-order therapeutic perspectives has produced schism within field of family therapy. Attempts to bridge that schism, using view of language that informs dialectical psychology to construct both-order, and framing of first- and second-order, perspectives. Such framing illustrates how one can have second-order mind while doing first-order therapy. Includes case example. (Author/NB)
