Virginia Satir (1918 - 1988) was a pioneer of family therapy who developed therapeutic approaches with families that continue to be effective today. Her books and videos remain mainstays for training psychotherapists in graduate schools and beyond.
This professional training for psychotherapists and psychotherapists in training will use seven of the principles Satir developed for family therapy, and modify them for use in couple therapy.
