Topical Panel 02 on Group, Individual or Family Therapy Part 1 featuring Mary M Goulding, MSW, Virginia Satir, ACSW, Paul Watzlawick, PhD, and Jeffrey K Zeig, PhD.
Moderated by F Theodore Reid, Jr, MD.
This workshop will center around a videotape of my work. Discussion will focus around what I see, how I choose the moment of intervention, and the kinds of intervention I choose. Concepts will be related to the theory underlying my practice as a family therapist.
New developments will be presented in the theory and technique of strategic therapy with individuals, families, and couples, including prescribing the metaphor and the use of confusional techniques with families. Concepts will be illustrated with videotaped examples.
