ABSTRACT
The article features psychotherapist Virginia Satir. Her book "Conjoint Family Therapy" is said to have confirmed that she is a pioneer of that therapeutic approach. Based on the article, Satir is sensitive to the nonverbal aspects of communication. Although she has a hard time describing a family in abstract terms, she can understand the family system once she engaged with them with all her senses.
