Many of us are afraid to communicate to others our true feelings.

The late Ms. Satir was one of the most influential psychologists of her day. She was the author of Conjoint Family Therapy, Peoplemaking, Self Esteem and numerous other books

The role of the therapist, the role of the client panel( Visual )

4 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The discussion begins with May who emphasizes the importance of availability to the client. Rogers states that the therapist serves a function rather than a role. Satir examines the expectations of the client and therapist and how the therapist is able to be a leader while still maintaining a relationship based on equality. Szasz describes concrete economic factors and other social and psychological factors that motivate the therapist. Following these introductory remarks, panel members elaborate on their own thoughts and comment on each others' views. The panel then responds to questions from the audience.
