Example text

Certain communications, 'double-binds ' , were seen a s especially dangerous. There are three defining characteristics of a double-bind : first , there is an intense emotionally significant relation­ ship which exists between the participants; secondly, there is a sender of the 'double-bind' message who sends two orders of message in which one denies the other; and thirdly, there is a receiver of the message who cannot comment on the disparity between the two orders. Take a child who is continually told to show affection to a parent, and then is met by coldness, and then is blamed for their confusion about the messages.
