Change of interpretative schemes and schemes of experience: depressive patients in the interaction of clinical psychotherapy

By analyzing therapeutic talks my study approaches a cognitive cultural sociology. The study's key issue investigates how and under which conditions a change of interpretative schemes and schemes of experience can take place. It also discusses which components and dynamics are vital for the process of change and which practices the therapists' use in order to effect change in the patient. By means of Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis I investigated various observation levels and linguistic means for the observation of such processes of change. Furthermore, the study develops two theoretical concepts: a concept for the distinction of cognition and communication, and a concept of (cognitive) processes of change and their conditions.
