VALDES, Nelson et al. Therapeutic Change Process: Analysis of Relevant Episodes in a Group Therapy With Addict Patients. Psykhe [online]. 2005, vol.14, n.2, pp.3-18. ISSN 0718-2228.

This article presents the results of a study aimed to determine and describe the type of communicative actions made by therapists and patients during the sessions of a group therapy. A discovery-oriented methodology was applied, conducting qualitative content analysis. Results include the description of the identified actions by levels of analysis, and their ideal sequential patterns, associated to in-session change and particularly to this therapeutic modality. Finally, the results are discussed considering the main theoretical and empirical frameworks in psychotherapy research.

Keywords : psychotherapeutic change; episodes of change; communicative actions.
