The Satir Interaction Model

Yesterday I rediscovered a old paper I found at my office a couple of months ago, it mentioned the Satir Interaction Model. "Virginia Satir believed that all levels of human interaction need congruent communication in which intentions align with verbal and non-verbal messages. In Ingredients of an interaction, Virginia Satir distinguishes several states of internal processing in any significant interaction."

Now I have read about it some more on the Internet and I have decided that it is finally time to buy one of her books (which also covers the Satir Change Model)

Satir, Virginia, John Banmen, Jane Gerber, and Maria Gomori. The Satir Model, Family Therapy and Beyond. Palo Alto CA: Science and Behavior Books, 1991. ISBN: 8314-0078-1.
