Shades of courage. Emotional dimensions of courage in the family semantic polarities model.
TPM. Testing, Psychometrics and Methodology in Applied Psychology,23(2),215-233. DOI 10.4473/TPM23.2.6
This article puts forward the hypothesis that courage varies accordingly with the dominant meanings through which people construct their own world. Delving into the model of family semantic polarities (Ugazio, 2013), the authors identify different shades of courage within the semantics of freedom, good- ness, power, and belonging and illustrate and discuss them providing examples from their clinical practice and …Download the abstract
Family Semantic Polarities and Positionings. A semantic analysis.
Rober,P.& Borcsa M. (eds.) Research perspectives in couple therapy: Discursive qualitative methods), Cham: Springer, pp. 125-148. doi:10.1007/978-3-319-23306-2_9. ISBN 978-3-319-23305-5
This chapter applies the semantic polarities model (Ugazio, 1998; 2013/12) and the semantic analysis derived from this model to the clinical case of Alfonso and Vittoria, the same that the other Authors of this book analyze through other models and tools.
The semantic analysis of the four sessions with Victoria and Alfonso was carried out by two independent coders, applying the Family Semantics Grid (FSG) (Ugazio et al, 2009; Ugazio et al. in press). Inspired by the semantic polarities model, the FSG distinguishes and identifies two kinds of semantic polarities: narrated and interactive. The first are the semantic oppositions within which each partner, during conversation, defines him or herself, other significant persons and events. These polarities construct the “the narrated story”, which may be different from the “lived experience” that each conversational partner puts into action when interacting with his or her interlocutors….Download the abstract
The Semantics Grid of the Dyadic Therapeutic Relationship – SG-DTR.
TPM. Testing, Psychometrics and Methodology in Applied Psychology,22(1),135-159. DOI: 10.4473/TPM22.1.8
The article introduces the Semantics Grid of the Dyadic Therapeutic Relationship (SG-DTR), a
coding system for the analysis of the therapeutic relationship. It is inspired by the systemic and cognitivist therapeutic field of research on meaning and psychopathology and make testable the concept of
family semantic polarities, developed by Ugazio (1998, 2013). The SG-DTR identifies the interactive
semantic polarities, that is, the semantic oppo
Freedom, Goodness, Power and Belonging: The Semantics of Phobic, Obsessive- compulsive, Eating, and Mood Disorders.
Journal of Constructivist Psychology, 28 (4), 293-315. DOI: 10.1080/10720537.2014.951109
Are the semantics of “freedom,” “goodness,” “power,” and “belonging” characteristic of the stories narrated in psychotherapy by individuals respectively with phobic, obsessive-compulsive, eating, and mood disorders? To verify this hypothesis, put forward by Ugazio’s model of semantic polarities, the Family Semantics Grid (FSG) was applied to the transcripts of 120 individual video-recorded systemic therapy sessions… Download the abstract

Semantic Polarities and psychopathology in the Family. Permitted and Forbidden Stories
New York: Routledge. ISBN 978-0-415-82307-4, doi:10.4324/9780203552384
This is the English translation of second edition of the book “ Storie permesse, storie proibite.Polarità semantiche familiari e psicopatologie” ( Bollati Boringhieri, 2012) in which I presented my model of semantic polarities. It bridges the gap between psychotherapeutic practice and clinical theory by examining phobias, obsessive-compulsions, eating disorders, and depression in the context of the family, using an intersubjective approach to personality. My concept of “semantic polarities” gives a new perspective to the construction of meaning in the family and other interpersonal contexts. At no point is theory left in the wasteland of abstraction. The concreteness of the many case studies recounted, and examples taken from well-known novels, will allow readers to immediately connect the topics discussed with their own experience.
Storie. permesse, storie proibite. Polarità semantiche familiari e psicopatologie. Nuova edizione ampliata, aggiornata e rivista.
Torino: Bollati Boringhieri.
Questa seconda edizione del volume presenta in modo compiuto il modello psicopatologico che ho elaborato sui disturbi fobici, ossessivo-compulsivi e alimentari estendendolo anche alle depressioni, o quanto meno ad un tipo di depressioni per lo più cicliche e segnate da vissuti di esclusione, tra cui rientrano anche i disturbi diagnosticati come bipolari di tipo due. Le ipotesi di fondo del modello rimangono le stesse esposte nella prima edizione del 1998, ma questo è un volume sostanzialmente nuovo, in cui la teoria delle polarità semantiche è completamente rivista e molto ampliata rispetto alla prima versione. Qui l’attenzione non soltanto ai contesti inter-soggettivi originari delle varie psicopatologie, ma anche e sopratutto alle caratteristiche dei contesti entro i quali si verifica l’insorgenza della psicopatologia nel qui e alle relazione terapeutica.
