About this title


The Mental Research Institute (MRI) has a distinguished history and can lay claim as the birthplace of numerous contributions to Communication/Interactional theory and innovations in the application of these ideas in the practice of family and brief therapy -- not least of which is to be home of the MRI Brief Therapy Center (BTC). If the work of Don Jackson is the heart and soul of MRI, the articles in this new volume are its backbone. This new volume brings together a selection of the very best papers from the MRI Brief Therapy Center not an easy task for the editors. Consider that Fisch, Weakland, and Watzlawick published more than 250 articles and book chapters, and add the contributions of other BTC associates and the number grows to more than 400. The focus of this volume is on the most important papers written by John Weakland and Richard Fisch the pioneers of communication/interactional theory and brief therapy.

Recipient of awards for momentous contributions to Family Therapy and Brief Therapy from the American Family Therapy Association (AFTA) and the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT), Dr. Fisch is co-author of the ground breaking books Tactics of Change Doing Therapy Briefly, (with John H. Weakland and Lynn Segal), (1982); and Change Principles of Problem Formation and Problem Resolution, (with Paul Watzlawick and John Weakland), (1974); and more recently Brief Therapy with Intimidating Cases (with Karin Schlanger), (1999). In July 2007 Dr. Fisch retired both from private practice and from the MRI Brief Therapy Center. He now lives in quiet retirement in Menlo Park, California. Wendel A.

Drawn to the Mental Research Institute (MRI) in 1987 to study the work of Don Jackson and the MRI Brief Therapy approach; he became an MRI Research Associate when John Weakland encouraged him to found the Don Jackson Archive.

MRI Director from 2000-2004, and a Senior Research Fellow, Dr. Ray continues to serve as Director of the Jackson Archive, a shared research project of MRI and The University of Louisiana at Monroe (ULM) Marriage and Family Therapy Program. Karin Schlanger, LMFT is originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
