Virginia counsels Linda, a woman who holds anger and resentment toward her mother (feels her mother is too critical). Using a “tableau” (guided skit), Satir helps Linda view her parents and mother’s family of origin in a more understanding, compassionate way.
This enables the client to forgive her mother. This tape includes a follow-up interview (three years later) that shows the extensive and lasting impact of this therapeutic work. 72 minutes.
