Una famiglia presenta la figlia di 17 anni che ha tentato il suicidio al dottor Minuchin. Minuchin scopre dal padre che lui e sua moglie hanno divorziato psicologicamente dalla nascita della figlia e la madre afferma di sentirsi ancora single. L'esplorazione dei sottosistemi del coniuge e dei genitori fornisce una mappa della famiglia. Minuchin tenta di costruire un'organizzazione familiare alternativa in cui i figli adolescenti formano un sottosistema di guarigione.
Salvador Minuchin, MD, developed Structural Family Therapy, which addresses problems within a family by charting the relationships between family members, or between subsets of family. He was Director of the Philadelphia Child Guidance Clinic. Although it was minimally staffed when he began, under his tutelage the Clinic grew to become one of the most modeled and respected child guidance facilities in the world. In 1981, Minuchin began his own family therapy center in New York. After his retirement in 1996, the center was renamed the Minuchin Center. Dr. Minuchin is the author of many notable books, including many classics. His latest is Mastering Family Therapy: Journeys of Growth and Transformation. In 2007, a survey of 2,600 practitioners named Minuchin as one of the ten most influential therapists of the past quarter-century.
