Parallel process: When does a parallel occurrence carry meaning?

Terence Tracey, Cynthia E. Glidden-Tracey, Jamie Bludworth

Research output: Contribution to journalLetterpeer-review


Watkins ("Some thoughts about parallel process and psychotherapy supervision: When is a parallel just a parallel?" Psychotherapy, 2012, pp. 344-346) has commented on our paper on the parallel process in supervision. He takes exception to our interpersonal definition of parallel process and implies that it is not capturing real parallel process. We argue for the theoretical and methodological merits of our definition as well as the validity support demonstrated.
