The first meeting in psychotherapeutic and psychosocial work, has a big impacton the continuation. It is a less explored research field. Children’s ‘‘voices’’ tend to come inthe back-ground in family therapy and other settings. In a project at CAP (Child andAdolescent Psychiatry) the children’s views were collected in interviews with parents andtherapists present. The grounded theory analysis process was used. The children addressedthe importance of the therapist’s actions and positions in helping them to be able tocommunicate and to be in a dialogue. To be accepted and allowed to express feelings wasimportant, and so was how the therapist managed to adjust to each person in the room andgive space for various perspectives.
