Workshop 2: "Questions as Interventions"

The specific questions that a therapist asks during the course of a clinical interview are not neutral or innocent. Depending on the therapist’s intention in asking, and the manner in which the questions are formulated and expressed, they tend to have very different effects. For instance, questions can have generative and healing effects on clients, or can have constraining and pathologizing effects. Together with his colleagues, Karl has developed a classification of different kinds of questions that are based on differing intentions and which clarify different probable effects on clients. This classification with an update will be outlined in this presentation.
