Satir Family Therapy
Watch Jean McLendon, one of the foremost practitioners of Virginia Satir’s approach to family therapy, in this touching live session with Janice, a single mother, and her eleven-year-old son, John. Learn the essence of the Satir method as McLendon elegantly demonstrates what she calls “a model for the brave and courageous and the big-hearted souls.”

“I just want to stop having so much anger inside and just stop being mean to other people,” declares John at the beginning of the session. Unlike many children who get dragged to therapy against their will by their parents, John stepped up to the plate to ask his mother if he could talk to a counselor about his anger. In this heart-warming session, McLendon gently helps John accept the sadness underneath his anger, as she uncovers a series of significant losses John has had to face so early in his young life. With deep care and reverence, McLendon helps both John and his mother to embrace the vulnerable parts of themselves with tenderness and love.

Viewers will have the opportunity to watch McLendon skillfully demonstrate key aspects of the Satir approach, such as creating safety, making contact, and validating feelings and desires. She also shows how the family mapping technique can be used as a visual tool to help deepen the work. An added bonus is an engaging discussion after the session that sheds further light on the Satir approach to family therapy.

With this demonstration, Jean illustrates the Satir Model in practice.  It is a marvelous teaching tool.  The way she moves her body and uses her voice reminds me of Virginia.  Every step she takes is precious and to the point. Her focus is positive and transformational. Rather than dwelling on the presenting symptom, Jean carefully helps her clients move forward from anger to hurt, to loss, to grief and to acceptance.

As a teacher of twenty years, I just want to say that this demonstration was always the one that impressed my students the most. It is a beautiful demonstration of how Satir's approach can be used successfully by others.  It inspires, educates and moves
