Satir Family Therapy Model
More than sixty five years ago, Virginia Satir made a debut in the therapy field through her work on family therapy. She first worked as a school teacher and then a social worker and through her work experience she was able to develope one of the most important models that have been employed in family therapy. From her experience, she came up with an approach which she used to work with families.
Analysts have described Satir as hard working, warm, brilliant, and in touch with her work as she understood the pain of being humans (Nicholas and Schwartz, 1997). In her work, Satir developed mental field away from pathological concept and gave the notion of people as a product of negative family patterns. Virginia Satir is a well known family therapist who deals with the entire family rather than a single family member.
