      Man kan imidlertid ikke forvente, at patienten på egen hånd formår at indkredse og fortælle om kernen i sine vanskeligheder. Ofte vil patienten snarere udleve, gentage og i en vis forstand demonstrere, hvad der er kernen i hendes problem, via den måde, hun fortæller om sig selv og sit liv på, og den måde, hvorpå hun relaterer sig til og interagerer med terapeuten.
      However, one cannot expect that the patient is, on her own, able to specify and speak of the core of her difficulties. Rather, the patient will often live, repeat and in a sense demonstrate, what the core of her problem is, through the way she speaks of herself and her life, and the way in which she relates to and interacts with the therapist.

      Kernen i vores arbejde er ikke - som man måske kunne tro - indsamlingen af store mængder data og besværlige analyser. Kernen i kvalitetsudvikling er tværtimod[sic] udviklingen af en kultur, hvor der er tradition for systematisk at drøfte kvaliteten i fora, der mødes regelmæssigt.
      The core of our work is not - as one might think - the collection of great amounts of data and difficult analyses. On the contrary,[sic] the core in quality development is the development of a culture with a tradition of systematically discussing the quality in forums that meet regularly.
