In family therapy conversations there is always a tension between speaking and keeping silent. The dialectic of openness and closeness, sharing and not sharing, revealing and concealing  characterizes the therapeutic conversation with families. In th  e space between what is said and not said, the therapist can find useful chances but also complexities which is difficult to deal with. How can  we face this complex dialectic? And the secrets?   Discussing some clinical cases, Peter Rober will seek to feel in the disquieting void left by the hidden and untold stories.
