Virginia Satir’s Columbus Day Story Suggests Not Just the World is Round, But People Too

“If you want to make enemies, try to change something,”

~ President Woodrow Wilson

Virginia Satir, considered the mother of “Family Therapy” and educational approaches to strengthening intimate relationships, shares a Columbus Day story as a metaphor for better understanding ourselves and each other. As she reflects on Christopher Columbus’ experience and discoveries, she proposes it’s not just the world that’s round, but people too.

On Columbus Day 2012, the challenges she addressed for couples, families and helping professionals in this historic 1984 PAIRS Foundation Professional Training presentation remain at the forefront of efforts to reform and improve healthcare, mental health, care for Veterans, and the resiliency of America’s families and neighborhoods.
