RAMPULLA, María Paula y AVILA-ESPADA, Alejandro. Multidimensional And Conceptual Study Of Change In Mary's Therapeutic Process: Changes Observed In The Frames Prototypes. Subj. procesos cogn. [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.1, pp. 230-247. ISSN 1852-7310.
This study is part of a series of researches conducted on the process of change. A group of researchers in Spain, Argentina, Mexico, Chile and Germany have worked for more than a decade (1997-2010) in the Salamanca-Barcelona-Madrid Project on Psychotherapy Process Research (SMBP; Ávila-Espada, Vidal-Didier et al., 1998a, 1998b; Ávila-Espada, Gutiérrez, Mitjavila & Poch, 2002). This project, a study conducted on single case research (The Publicist), concerning the main phases of the complete treatment (up to 199 audio recorded sessions), have given us the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the therapeutic process, through the qualitative data of content analysis of sessions using a variety of procedures. A series of papers presenting the main results of the process of change dynamics and empirical dimensions are in progress. In this paper we focus on FRAMES (Fundamental Repetitive Maladaptive Emotional Structures; Dahl, 1988), presenting results concerning some inferences on how the change can be observed through changes in FRAMES patterns. Results concerning the analysis of the main FRAMES (Exigency) are described and the main issues demanding further research are identifed.
