QUIROGA, Susana e CRYAN, Glenda. Therapeutic microprocess analysis of the Focalised Therapy Group (FTG) device for violent early adolescents. Anu. investig. [online]. 2010, vol.17, pp. 69-78. ISSN 1851-1686.
The therapeutic microprocess analysis of the Focalised Therapy Group- FTG device for violent early adolescents was carried out in the framework of the 2004- 2007 P069 and 2008-2010 P049 UBACYT Projects. The instrument used was the Therapeutic Cycle Model- TCM (Mergenthaler, 1996a, 1996b, 1998, 2008; Argentine adaptation for general and specific group processes: Fontao and Mergenthaler, 2005 a, b; Toranzo, Taborda, Ross, Mergenthaler and Fontao, 2007; Quiroga and Cryan, 2007 d, 2008 a , 2009b). In this research the analysis corresponding to the therapeutic microprocess, taking into account the whole text (both patients and therapists) in only one session (session number 7) of two groups selected at random (FTG 7 and FTG 9), is shown. This session was segmented into 150-word fragments. With this microprocess analysis it was possible to observe in all the segments the verbal activity of the patients as well as the presence of four patterns (Connecting, Relaxing, Reflecting y Experiencing), with abridged and complete Therapeutic Cycles rotation. Furthermore, it was possible to identify therapeutically relevant textual activity, which implies that the therapist plays an indispensable role in the expression of emotions, in the verbal formulation of reflexive processes and in the achievement of the connection between emotional and abstract contents.
