Abstract

This paper reviews a number of practical examples of family sculpting to illustrate possibilities for its use described in a general way in an earlier companion article (Journal of Family Therapy (1981) 3: 341–352). Examples are considered first in relation to generic practical possibilities for sculpting: structural analysis and diagnosis, the inescapability of the concrete, the portrayal of ambiguity. A second set of examples is considered in relation to major practical contexts of sculpting: with children, with students, with workers. The paper concludes with a discussion of the complexity of family sculpting and a comparison of the structural interpretation of sculpting offered here with Papp et al.'s notion of choreography.
