This session, recorded in 1984 by the American Association for marriage and Family Therapy, features Virginia Satir conducting a live, unedited therapy session with a family. The featured family is a large intact family with ten children whose presenting problem is the grief following the loss of one of their children who is missing a year after his abduction. During this experimental session, the family is emotionally and physically engaged through use of stairs, touch, and positioning to reflect the mourning, intersibling rivalry and distances of the father. The DVD offers an excellent demonstration of Satir's open, directive, and special style.
