Strengthening Couples And Families The Satir Model (A Half Day Seminar) Abstract:
Why is triangulation more evident in closed family systems within the dominant submission model? How do family exclusions occur? How can couples and families lessen the consequences of inequality? How can couples and families who live with exclusions, triangulation and cut-offs live with less pain and more love?
How can the process of de-triangulation occur? How can we strengthen families?
Dr Neil will address these issues and propose solutions for improvement of couples and family functioning.
Treatment options to enable open systems, gender equality in parenting, de triangulation, and promoting the "Psychology of Compassion" in the family will be discussed.
