Abstract [en]

Therapists’ influence on the therapeutic relationship is not much studied. In the first session in child and adolescent psychiatry (CAP) therapists are supposed to conduct assignments connected to the medical model. In psychotherapy the first meeting is regarded as having great impact on the continuation. Despite this, there are few studies on the issue. The aim was to learn more about the therapists’ perception of first meetings in CAP.

Therapists were interviewed together with the families they had met. Reflectors helped the interviewer to hold on to the theme. The interviews were video-recorded. The data analysis was inspired by grounded theory.

Two aspects appeared in the therapists’ descriptions, psychiatric and family psychotherapeutic ones. Psychiatric aspects included the demands from the organisation like making assessments and making families want to come back. In the meeting it converged with wishes from the family members: wanting to be in a dialogue with their therapists and negotiating the planning process. The therapists addressed that parents and children contributed to success in the meeting. Balancing between the psychiatric and the family psychotherapeutic aspects without questioning one’s own professional skills as CAP personnel seemed to be a challenge for the therapists.
