Triangulating the conversation through a therapist helps to unstick and breathe life back into the communication again. Writing about systemic thinking is often a ‘collaborative exchange of voices’, as personally described by Hoffman in her engaging text describing the history and development of family therapy. Family and systemic therapy has a reputation of being clothed in obscure language and ideas. The chapter discusses the multiple systemic principles and therefore positions one can hold in the supervision space. A holding of these positions in the supervision space facilitates a greater awareness of the uniqueness of the otherness of people and allows for a therapeutic positioning, which is an important contribution to the art of therapeutic interaction. Systemic and family therapies can be obscured by, and hide-bound by, impenetrable language, the need for teams and personnel and a sometimes confusing epistemology.
