Personal Reflections on the Masters: Erickson, Frankl, Whitaker, Rogers & Satir with Jeff Zeig
Topical Panel 10 from the Evolution of Psychotherapy 1990 - Therapeutic Uses of Humor
Featuring Arnold Lazarus, PhD; Miriam Polster, PhD; Carl Whitaker, MD; Cloe Madanes, Lic Psychol.
Moderated by Michael Yapko, PhD.
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.
Carl Whitaker (1990) demonstrates consultation and therapy with a therapist who has brought a bilingual family with a mother who experiences anxiety attacks. The maternal grandmother, mother, father, and two children are engaged by Whitaker as he sits on the floor and experiments with different types of play and fantasy.
The workshop will center on a role-played demonstration of family therapy using members of the audience. There will be an enactment of the telephone plea from the new patient to the therapist. Included will be structuring the blind date appointment between the two paranoids when the therapist is one of them. History taking and the war for the family "I" position will be demonstrated. Also discussed will be expanding the anxiety and establishing the generation gap.
