Contextual therapy: Applying the family ledger to couple therapy
Date of Original Version
This paper uses detailed case analysis to illustrate the intergenerational concepts of loyalty, legacy, and relational stagnation described by Boszormenyi-Nagy in his Contextual Therapy approach. Special emphasis is given to how the therapist assesses the ethical dimension of a couple’s interactions and links this to reported symptoms and relationship difficulties among all family members. © 2004 by The Haworth Press, Inc.
