Gazda, G. M., Ed.
The presentations of 3 top people in the field of family counseling and therapy were transcribed and slightly edited for this booklet. Three different but popular approaches are represented. Virginia Satir discusses and demonstrates the Conjoint Family Therapy approach which she pioneered. Dr. Oscar Christensen, a recognized leader in Adlerian counseling, presents the Adlerian rationale for working with families and also demonstrates the procedure with a pre-selected family. Finally, Dr. Haim Ginott, noted for his group work with children and families, presents his rationale for assisting adults who work with children. The reactions of a panel of experts to these 3 presentations concludes the Proceedings. (Author/TL)
