  • Potential for growth
  • All behavior is motivated out of good desires
  • Dysfunction is a result of hindrance of growth
  • Change comes by striving to be real or authentic
  • Therapeutic relationship characterized by honesty
    and openness.

4
Symbolic Experiential FT (SEFT)
  • Carl Whitakerfather of this theory
  • Multigenerational Approach
  • Symbolic refers to the fact that much of our
    experience lies outside of our consciousness. It
    refers to something or some process that has more
    than one meaning.

5
SEFT Theoretical concepts
  • Non-theoretical approach
  • Creativity
  • Emotional experience prized
  • Use of self Self of the Therapist
  • Cotherapy
  • Black sheep
  • White knight
  • Battle for structure
  • Battle for initiative

6
SEFT Goals
  • For families to develop a sense of identity, but
    allow for individuality of members
  • Getting people to be more real

7
SEFT Lessons for therapists
  • Relegate every significant other to second place
  • Learn how to love, flirt with any infant
    available. Unconditional positive regard probably
    isnt present after the baby is 3-years-old.
  • Develop a reverence for your own impulses, and be
    suspicious of your behavior sequences.
  • Enjoy your mate more than your kids, and be
    childish with your mate.
  • Fracture role structures at will and repeatedly.
  • Learn to retreat and advance from every position
    that you take.

SEFT Lessons for therapists (contd)
  • Guard your impotence as one of your most valuable
    weapons.
  • Build long-term relations so you can be free to
    hate safely.
  • Face the fact that you must grow old and die.
    Develop a sense of the benign absurdity of
    lifeyours and those around youand thus learn to
    transcend the world of experience. If we can
    abandon our missionary zeal we have less chance
    of being eaten by cannibals.
  • Develop your primary process living. Evolve a
    joint craziness with someone you are safe with.
    Structure a professional cuddle group so you
    wont abuse your mate with the garbage left over
    from the days work.
  • As Plato said, practice dying.

9
SEFT Techniques
  • Redefining symptoms as growth
  • Modeling fantasy alternatives to actual stressors
  • Separating interpersonal from intrapersonal
    family stress
  • Adding practical bits of interaction offering a
    number of interpretations that the family can
    accept or reject.
  • Augmenting the despair of a family member
    heightening the anxiety of one member to generate
    family support.
  • Affective confrontation siding directly with one
    or more members against others
  • Treat children like children and not
    peersheirarchy.
