This chapter presents two techniques used in functional dialectic system approach—the dialectic dialogue exercises and family sculpting. The dialectic dialogue is used to improve communication and understanding between people. There are two forms of dialectic dialogue: dialogue and monologue. Family sculpting is a nonverbal portrayal of family relationships and roles in a physical space. Sculpting executes dialectic relationships by asking family members to describe the situation as they see it.
