Abstract

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.
