Structuring and Collaboration: Balancing Discourses in the First Meeting at Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
The aim was to join together children's, parents' and therapists' views and detect discourses and their influence in the first meeting. Data were collected in joint interviews and qualitative content analysis was used. Two competing discourses were found; Structuring, which was instrumental and Collaboration, concerning relational aspects. The latter dominated. All three parties conveyed that both discourses needed to be acknowledged to avoid that the meeting would be too strict or too flexible.
