The session is a demonstration of the Eco-System Model, incorporating class, racial and ethnic experiences of both the family and therapist. Mother lacks confidence and skill to parent her children, forcing her 14-year-old daughter to do so. After running away from home to pursue the attention of older men, her actions culminate in a suicide gesture. An experience is created for the mother to reach out to her daughter.

This live therapy session, recorded in 1984 by the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and digitally re-mastered in 2007, features Salvador Minuchin conducting a live family therapy session with a family. The featured family is a large, blended, recently married couple with dual-careers and five stepchildren. The identified patient is the youngest son (age 11) who is acting out. After defocusing attention on the identified patient and re-labeling much of the sibling behavior, attention is focused on the couple. The use of simplicity and humor to lure the family into desiring the necessary change and following the family's lead in defining the problem illustrates Minuchin's expert ability at not being an expert.
