Fun to see how this article advocates for the use of DP in frequent-interaction spaces. A friend of mine was talking about using DA in couples therapy. (Seems like she would need some pretty well-educated clients to avoid scaring them off). The neighbor example is the kind of thing I hope to take from the class for my work as a teacher: note the typical turns in talk, and if things aren’t going your way, use the tools that tend to work to do the work you haven’t yet accomplished on first try.

I read this one a little more carefully and found the findings a bit depressing. The balance that students must strike between “doing-being-normal” and achieving certain academic goals and a career and so on is a difficult one. But I guess most of us know that students who don’t do being normal can be ostracized. I think even what teachers would call over-acheivers do the same kind of policing amongst each other, but with a different reference point for what is normal.


This one is short because I worked so much on my paper today. I have enjoyed the course very much. I needed to see a challenge to cognitive assumptions that wasn’t behaviorist. I realized when I was on page 15 or so of my paper that I should have written about DP and learning theory, but it’s too late now. But that might be a way I continue to pursue readings on the topic in the future. Thanks for all your work and planning, I think it went quite well.

  1. I look forward to reading your paper and many thanks for all your contributions to the class. I feel very fortunate to have been able to gather us all together to push our understandings a bit further down the discourse road.
