Detection of communicative behavior patterns in a therapeutic group of adolescents
Keywords:Adolescent, therapeutic group, talking analysis, sequential analysis, lag
The aim of this work consists of detecting the existence of stabile patterns of behaviour in the communicative interaction that takes place among teenagers who take part in a psychotherapeutic group, from the talk analysis between them and the therapist. The observational methodology has been used. An accurate categorial system as an observation instrument was done, and later recategorized. The number of an-hourobservation sessions was twenty-four. The record has been systematized, and the quality control (of the data) has been satisfactory. The data was submitted to sequential analysis, using SDIS-GSEQ software. The obtained results show a positive evolution of the communicative behaviour of the group, related to changes detected in the different patterns of communicative conduct, so that as the talk sessions between the teenagers progress, they get more spontaneous, reflexive and autonomous.
