Diamond, Guy; Liddle, Howard A.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v64 n3 p481-88 Jun 1996
Explored the process of resolving an in-session impasse between a parent and an adolescent in family therapy. Focusing on altering the content and affective tone of a discussion, the "shift intervention" was used to direct a family's conversation away from trying to solve behavior management problems and toward a discussion of fundamental relationship problems. Discusses research findings. (KW)
