Abstract: The study demonstrates how motherhood gender‐related discourse is intertwined with the ways in which the systemic techniques and systemic thinking are realised in the session. This research explores the consequences of gender‐related discourse commonly co‐constructed by participants in couple therapy and not recognised or challenged by the therapist. Video‐recorded data from a couple therapy session containing unrecognised gender‐related discourse were subjected to conversation analysis (CA). The interview (Interpersonal Process Recall) transcript was analysed according to the rules of dialogical analysis. Gender assumptions held unchallenged by a therapist can be manifested through: placing one spouse in the position of the person accountable for the gender‐related choices, the therapist's mirroring of one participant's lexical choices only, sharing normative expectation of one person. Unrecognised gender discourse create difficulty in introducing circular thinking. The obstacles on the therapist's side can render power issues connected with gender invisible and thus unavailable for introduction into the therapeutic conversation.
