About this title


Virginia Satir (1916-1988) is internationally recognized for her creativity as a co-founder of family therapy. Based on the conviction that people are capable of continued growth, change and new understanding, her goal was to improve relationships and communication within the family. She once said that in healing the family we heal the world. Satir was ranked as fifth on the list of the most influential therapists of the last 25 years (Psychotherapy Networker, March 2007). Satir s broadly encompassing perspective is communicated in this new book, In Her Own Words, through a series of previously published and never-before-published short works she produced between 1963 and 1983. Presented in chronological order, these articles give readers a strong sense of her professional evolution, as well as her lively personal voice. The short introductions by contemporary contributors provide frame and context for what follows. Contents include: - Schizophrenia and Family Therapy - The Family as a Treatment Unit - Family Systems and Approaches to Family Therapy - Conjoint Family Therapy - The Growing Edge of Myself as a Family Therapist - When I Meet a Person - Making a One-Parent Family Work - The Therapist and Family Therapy - A Partial Portrait of a Family Therapist in Progress - Therapist s Use of Self - The Therapist Story
