Family system is defined as families with father-daughter incest and parallel process as the extent to which the provider and family systems demonstrate similar dynamics.-The authors personal and professional experience with families and providers supplied the observations for the database.

These experiences included an abusive family upbringing and 32 years of clinical work with offenders/families within various settings in multiple regions of the United States. A thematic hermeneutic method was applied to describe composites (fictitious providers and family compilations from hundreds of observations) within two scenarios.

The researcher used an interpretive process known as the hermeneutic circle to analyze the scenarios. Twelve incestuous family dynamics were selected: commit abuse, parentification/role reversal, intergenerational pattern, denial, keep silence/secrets, cover up abusive behavior, protect abuser, ostracize the nonsilent, maintain closed system, engage in dissociation, experience trauma, and exhibit preabuse factors). Seven provider systems, offense-specific treatment, probation and parole departments, developmental disability and social services, attorneys and media, were examined for presence of the dynamics.

The study found that across scenarios, in all of the systems, regardless of level of exposure to offenders, parentification/role reversal was present. In provider systems with more intense exposure to offenders (treatment, probation, parole, and social and developmental disability services), 4 dynamics (parentification/role reversal, keep silence/secrets, protect abuser, and maintain a closed system) were found.

Across both scenarios, no dynamics were present in both families but absent in all provider systems. No dynamic was absent from all families and providers across both scenarios. This study focused on exposure as the key factor in creating parallel process. Further research should investigate how power impacts larger systemic parallels. Implications for clinical practice are as follows. Providers, education, and profession-boards should provide training on parallel process.

Training styles could include reading/testing, confidential surveys, or role-plays/case vignettes.
