Description

Description:

A multigenerational approach using co-therapy can enhance the effectiveness of family therapy. Cross-generational feedback avoids imprisonment in traditional transference. Family stress episodes can be seen as a multiprojectional process.

 

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe the role of the therapist as a symbolic "foster parent"
  2. To understand how to construct the family group as the "patient" in need of treatment

Carl Whitaker, MD's Profile

Carl Whitaker, MD Related seminars and products


Carl Whitaker, MD, was an American physician and psychotherapy pioneer family therapist. Whitaker is most well-known for acknowledging the role of the entire family in the therapeutic process. He is the founder of experiential family therapy, or the symbolic-experiential approach to therapy. Rather than scapegoating one family member or even a specific family problem, experiential family therapy looks at the entire family system. Several other approaches to family therapy have drawn heavily from Whitaker's theories.
