This paper will explore the clinical application of tracking sequences in family therapy with a particular focus on Bowen family systems theory. It considers how sequences can be used to track the emotional process occurring in relationship interactions, and the similarities and differences of a Bowen theory-informed approach compared with dialectical behaviour therapy and both classic and contemporary family therapy models. Case examples are utilised from the author’s clinical practice to raise ideas about the therapist joining the client as a co-researcher in this exercise and facilitating a process that helps assist the client develop their own self-awareness and problem- solving resources in the context of their relationships.
