Appreciations to Pat Bragg

by Sharon Loeschen

We are celebrating the wonderful contribution of Pat Bragg, President of the Satir Professional Development Institute of Manitoba, Canada, to the world by offering Satir training in Bahrain, where she trained not only students from Bahrain but also Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Morocco, United Arab Emirates and India. The training was very extensive and in October they received their certificates of completion, as seen in the picture above. She is also mid-way through a 25-day training program in Istanbul, Turkey.

Pat writes, “Virginia’s belief in the universality of people’s longing for intimacy, their deep desire to be recognized, validated, accepted and loved for themselves is totally confirmed by my experience.  From so many countries and cultures, we all connected through our sameness and grew through our differences.  I feel very blessed to have had this experience and honored to have had the opportunity to share my knowledge with such keen and loving therapists.  I know that my relationship with these fascinating and diverse groups will continue through my life, Inshallah.”

Appreciations to Sandy Novak

We want to appreciate Sandy Novak for her work in China.  She has just finished teaching a seven day Satir training for social work professors, which is part of a 34 day program to train them to practice and teach Satir therapy to their students.  It was held in Beijing but the professors came from all over China. Sandy described the training as helping them to know themselves on the inside and start to change the way they operate in relationships.  She wrote, “this group really opened up and learned a lot.  I listened in to small group discussions the last morning where their task was to answer each other’s questions.  The level of sophistication of their answers brought tears to my eyes.  . . .They were connecting concepts and ideas while using their own experience to validate their answers. . . .This group will go far.”

Sandy is a faculty member for the  Banmen Satir China Management Center

SR. MARIA LIRIO L. GUILLERMO, A.R.

Sister Malir from Manila conducted a training entitled “Triads and Family Process” for seminarians on retreat.  Click HERE to see many of the wonderful pictures that she sent to Satir Global so that all in the network could see.  They are amazing in capturing the experience of a Satir training!

Along with sending the pictures she wrote, “I love teaching.  Now as I teach, I journey with my students.  I know and I feel when my students, mostly religious candidates, need accompaniment.  Having researched on Students Functionality, where Satir’s teaching was one of my theories used, I have become more humane in dealing with my every student and my sisters in the convent. I continue reading Satir and learning from her and I am being enriched continually.  For a very important consideration, I have treasured Satir and she has become part of my daily inspiration.”

XXIII World Family Therapy Congress Technology, Families and Effective Therapy

Changing Traditions and Systemic Therapy:

Dangers and Opportunities for Families

The 23rd World Family Therapy Congress will be held 11 – 14 March 2015 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We invite you to join colleagues from around the world at the Congress Hotel, the JW Marriott, a five-star hotel in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.

The 2015 Congress has as its theme, Changing Traditions and Systemic Therapy: Dangers and Opportunities for Families. The Congress will focus on how generational, cultural, religious, and political changes impact families, and, as a result, families can respond to these changes as opportunities for growth. The 2015 Congress will feature many approaches to a variety of problems and ways of coping with them. The congress aims to help heal hurting couples and families in various cultures.

The International Family Therapy Association was an outgrowth of the East-West Bridging Congress conducted in Prague in 1987. Since that time, IFTA’s goal has been the same: Advancing family therapy worldwide by promoting research, education, and sound practice while promoting international cooperation and the exchange of knowledge and ideas that support the health and well-being of families and persons around the world.
