Diane: It’s all right sweetie. Come on, I’ve made some more pastry. The behaviour of this family can be seen to be repetitive and we can predict how they might interact in a variety of different situations, such as bedtime, bathing, going to the park and so on. The presence of these regularities in behaviour makes it look, to an outsider, as if the family is following a set of rules which seem to be necessary to maintain some form of equilibrium (Jackson 1957). As observers, we can see regularities in the actions of members of a family and we can go on to infer a set of rules that might give rise to such regularities.
Such a repetitive dynamic could thereby preserve stability (closed system). In effect, such a system displays a rule along the lines of ‘if the conflict between two persons escalates beyond a critical point then involve the third person to restore stability’. Importantly, it was suggested that if the involvement of the third person was through a symptom then the system overall was functioning so The first phase – 1950s to mid-1970s 29 that this symptom helped to maintain the balance or homeostasis of the triad: When therapists observed that what one spouse did provoked the other, who provoked the first in turn, they began to see that a dyad was unstable and it required a third person to prevent a ‘runaway’.
The coordination was seen to be achieved through communication between the components or parts of the system. Bateson (1958) was one of the first to suggest that a variety of social relationships, rituals, ceremonies and family life could be seen as patterns of interactions developed and maintained through the process of feedback. This became a key concept in family therapy, namely that some information about the effects or consequences of actions returns to alter subsequent action. Rather than focusing on how one event or action causes another, it was suggested that it is more appropriate to think of people as mutually generating jointly constructed patterns of actions based on continual processes of change.
