This is a content analysis of published case histories specifically designed to examine the way in which practitioners understand and interpret children's communication in the therapeutic sessions in order to explore how clinicians discuss what they think the child client wants to get out of therapy and how clinicians use their understanding of those expressions in their diagnostic formulations. This comparative analysis focuses on explicit theories and diagnostic formulations within the practice of several highly respected and long studied clinicians who have oriented themselves within different theoretical perspectives.
