The First-Ever Networker Lifetime Achievement Award
A maverick and a visionary in the ’60s and ’70s, Salvador Minuchin transformed the very idea of what a therapist was supposed to be from the self-contained cipher sitting mostly silent behind the patient’s head into something dazzlingly different—a brash interventionist willing to make people change regardless of what they were feeling or whether they even knew what they were feeling. Beyond that, he put forth a brand new model of psychotherapy—family therapy.
Join us as we honor Salvador Minuchin, the revered family therapy pioneer, with our first Psychotherapy Networker Lifetime Achievement Award. One of the most influential clinical practitioners ever, Minuchin has put his indelible stamp on our profession through his inspiring presence, his revolutionary ideas, his extraordinary technical skills, his commitment to social justice, and his determination to expand the boundaries of psychotherapy. In this very special event, we pay tribute to his multifaceted gifts with an evening filled with reminiscences by colleagues and students as well as highlights from taped sessions with clients.
