Example text

I can’t go up at all high, it makes me panic. It’s unbearable, I become paralysed’. Focusing on a detailed description of the problem experience can: 1. Make the client’s labelling of their experiences less vague. 2. Reveal variations in the original experience that can ‘deconstruct’ a vague over-inclusive (and seemingly overwhelming) problem into a more manageable phenomenon. A phenomenological technique that can be adapted for clinical purposes is Husserl’s eidetic reduction, which examines variation in the nature of an experience in order to lay bare any essential criteria that define the experience.

The word ‘meaning’ itself is ripe ‘for deconstruction’. Meaning itself can have different meanings. I can catch the meaning of a joke, understand the meaning of a phrase or grasp the meaning of a mathematical equation. In cognitive models meaning is imposed on a ‘formless flux’ by attribution or interpretation. In some humanist schools meaning is reflected in ‘felt experience’. There can be double meanings, hidden meanings, as in the psychoanalytic notion of ‘apparent meaning’, which hides a deeper core meaning further back in the unconscious, or deceptive meanings that point to other meanings.

Obviously, one requires more information on the client, and abstracting this verbatim from his complete discourse is artificial. But even as it is the dialogue raises several questions. What does the client understand by ‘bastard’? It’s a word that encapsulates not just a value judgement but an attitude, an attitude which justifies a certain action. For this client to call someone a bastard is a strong reproach – stronger, say, than twit, idiot, nincompoop, etc. By saying this the client has necessarily committed her/himself to a position which has further self-generated implications.
