This article informs a conversation analytic inquiry of video-recorded, Open Dialogue psychotherapy sessions. It limns two sorts of ‘my side tellings’ (MSTs) used by Open Dialogue professionals (ODPs). ODPs propose their cognition of the other partakers as either informed or derived. The two sorts of MSTs to diverse levels act as identifying and reading. The practices may be employed to back therapeutic evaluations just as ask reflection on the clients' behalfs and their use may mat client and therapist ‘voice’.
