Teoria delle polarità semantiche

Coraggiosi? Forse, ma in modo diverso.

Psicologia contemporanea, 268, 50-55, 2018.

Siamo tutti troppo individualisti in Occidente per cedere al fascino di questa emozione complessa che sfida quanto abbiamo costruito per un bene più grande. Anche tra gli psicologi e gli psicoterapeuti il coraggio trova un’accoglienza tiepida. Anni di egemonia della psicoanalisi ci hanno abituato a pensare che dietro a generosità, onestà, e a tutte le caratteristiche che mettono a rischio i propri interessi per …Download the abstract

A couple in love entangled in enigmatic episodes. A semantic analysis

Journal of Marital and Family Therapy,44,3,438-457, doi:10.1111/jmft.12321

The article presents a semantic analysis inspired by the theory of family semantic polarities developed by Ugazio (1998, 2013) applying two versions of a coding system, the Family Semantic Grid (FSG), to a couple session with Tom Andersen as a consultant. One version (FSG II) detects the narrated semantic polarities (NSPs) emerging during the session from the transcript, whereas the other (FSG III) identifies the interactive semantic polarities (ISPs) from the video recording. Both the NSPs and the ISPs are classified according to four sets of meaning called the semantic of freedom, goodness, power, and belonging. The analysis puts forward some hypothesis about the pattern that entangles the couple and high- lights Andersen’s contributions to overcome the problem troubling the couple.

The Family Semantic Grid II. Narrated polarities in couples

TPM. Testing, Psychometrics and Methodology in Applied Psychology, 24(2) 215-253, 2017. DOI: 10.4473/TPM24.2.4

The article introduces the Family Semantics Grid II, a coding system for the semantic analysis of therapeutic conversations with couples. Inspired by the theory of family semantic polarities developed by Ugazio (1998, 2013), it identifies the narrated semantic polarities that couples construct about themselves in therapy and classifies them according to the grids of the semantics of freedom, goodness, power, and belonging. The four grids sho

Libertà, Bontà, Potere e Appartenenza: le semantiche dei disturbi fobici, ossessivo compulsivi, alimentari e dell’umore.

Rivista italiana di costruttivismo, 5, 1, Aprile 2017, pp.4-27.

Le semantiche della “libertà”, della “bontà”, del “potere” e dell’“appartenenza” caratterizzano la storia raccontata in terapia dalle persone rispettivamente con disturbi fobici, ossessivo-compulsivi, alimentari e depressivi? Per verificare questa ipotesi, suggerita dal modello delle polarità semantiche di Ugazio (1998, 2013), è stata applicata la Family Semantics Grid (FSG) (Ugazio, Negri, Fellin, Di Pasquale, 2009) alle trascrizionidelle videoregistrazioni di 120 sedute individuali di terapia sistemica, le prime due di 60 pazienti Scarica l’abstract

Perchè siamo tanto diversi dai nostri familiari?

Psicologia Contemporanea, 260 (2), 44-49.

Quelle che Wittgenstein chiamava “somiglianze di famiglia”, innegabili quando si tratta di lineamenti del viso o aspetti del corpo, spesso sono poco presenti fra i familiari quanto a caratteristiche di personalità. I fratelli, ad esempio, sono spesso più diversi che simili come molte ricerche hanno documentato. Ma come spiegare queste differenze? Tutto farebbe pensare che crescere nella stessa famiglia ci renda più…. download the abstract

Family constructs and semantic polarities: a convergent perspective?

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

Family semantic polarities as a guide for the therapeutic process.

McCarthy, Imelda & Simon, Gail (Eds.) (2016). Systemic Therapy as Transformative Practice. Farnhill: Everything is Connected Press, pp. 368-391. ISBN 978-0-9930723-2-1 Paperback ISBN 978-0-9930723-3-8 E-book

After having summarized the concepts of semantic polarity and family semantics, the chapter attempts to demonstrate the usefulness of the concepts of semantic polarity and family semantics for the therapeutic change, through two clinical couple cases. The critical event that induces both couples discussed in the chapter to request a consultation is the same: an unexpected betrayal.Both would like to move on, especially as the third party, who entered their lives, does not seem to be a credible alternative to the betrayed partner for different reasons. But they fail to do so. A separation seems to be a likely, although undesirable, outcome. Both couples are at a stage in their lives where children are becoming independent, have been successfully married for a long time and their mutual expectations have been substantially met. The life they had planned has become a reality. They really wanted to start … Download the abstract
