Topic change processes in psychotherapy: a case study approach
A method for the analysis of transcripts from individual psychotherapy sessions is presented. The method, Topic Change Process Analysis (TCPA), is a qualitative and exploratory approach focusing on therapist-client interaction, on how such interaction influences topic changes during the therapy, and the possible contribution of the changes to the final therapeutic outcome. The method is descriptive. This makes it possible to explore the therapeutic processes in therapies with different theoretical orientations and to interpret the findings from different theoretical angles. The material from the analysis can be used to construct case stories covering topic changes occurring during a psychotherapy process.
