    Do general therapy change principles represent causal relationships?2014In: Journal of psychotherapy integration, ISSN 1053-0479, E-ISSN 1573-3696, Vol. 24, no 4, p. 280-283Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In his reply to our critique of the idea to integrate psychotherapies on the basis of general therapy change principles (TCPs), Goldfried (2014) maintains that these principles represent causal connections. In this comment, we argue that attributing a causal status to the TCPs involves seeing them as latent constructs, which is associated with a number of conceptual problems. A causal network analysis of observable symptoms, targets of change, and procedures, explained within a causal schema, appears to be a viable alternative. We further argue that the TCPs seem to represent something we know about humans by being human. Denial of these principles makes no sense. Thus, they lack the hallmark of empirical propositions that their denial is logically possible. Consequently, the TCPs cannot be refuted by experience.

    Psychotherapy integration through general therapy change principles: Missing the core of psychotherapy?2014In: Journal of psychotherapy integration, ISSN 1053-0479, E-ISSN 1573-3696, Vol. 24, no 4, p. 263-274Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    It has been proposed to integrate psychotherapies on the basis of general therapy change principles (TCPs). In this theoretical study, the authors analyzed the concept of psychotherapy and evaluated the TCPs' integrative approach from the position of this concept. The authors found that the TCPs' conceptualization is largely inconsistent with the concept of psychotherapy and contains assumptions that either raise conceptual issues or do not appear to fit with clinical evidence. In contrast to what is asserted or implied in the TCPs' approach, the abstract nature of the change principles means that they do not denote causal relationships, are not empirically testable, and cannot serve as a useful guide for clinical action. Moreover, the embeddedness of therapy procedures in causal schemas makes the assumption that therapists can master a multitude of procedures from different therapies unrealistic. Also against the assumptions of the TCPs' approach, the total effect of therapy is probably not the sum of the effects of the procedures and procedures and rationales from different therapies cannot be combined. Overall, the issues of the TCPs' integrative approach seem to stem from the omission of the essential feature of psychotherapy: to operate according to causal schemas of psychological phenomena. The authors argue that a focus on differences between therapies instead of common principles may lead to important assimilative integrations.

    Constructing Terminology and Defining Concepts for Gender Studies in Norway and Sweden2018In: NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, ISSN 0803-8740, E-ISSN 1502-394X, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 142-153Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This position paper is written by four key researchers from two projects (one in Norway and one in Sweden) aiming to define and discuss terms and concepts in Gender Studies. It is inspired by the concept of dialogue as a method of academic writing and discusses the methods, results, challenges, and choices made in the two projects. While they both aimed to create and discuss a vocabulary for Gender Studies and gender research, the projects took shape from different approaches, and produced different results. In this position paper, we want to discuss the meaning of doing conceptual work and deciding on definitions of terms. Our aim is not to determine which approach is “better”, but rather to understand how the field of Gender Studies and gender research is being built.
