SCILLETTA, Delia  and  MALDAVSKY, David. Study discrepancies regarding facts in couple and family therapy: concepts, instruments, procedures. Subj. procesos cogn. [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.1, pp.235-249. ISSN 1852-7310.

Objectives: to describe conflicts of couples and family expressed in the traits of the discrepancies among the versions of the facts given by the patients.

These features allow to categorize conflict more accurately and in detail as well as positive or negative change in couple and family clinic.
