Allowed me to explore the work of Virginia Satir by learning from some of her closest colleagues. I would recommend reading this book if you are interested in the Human Validation Process Model.

A very good overview of Satir's model. As with many founders of schools or theories or movements, I would like books to cover a little more of the person to get a sense of who they were, how they lived and have that provide more context for where their theories evolved from. The book is well organized and step by step.

So dated. But so essential. Not a book to read, but a book from which to create experiences, guided by someone who knows the model.
