Registration open for summer Satir Clinical Training Program

The UNC School of Social Work is offering a week-long intensive clinical training program in the Satir Growth Model this summer.
The Satir method is based on the teachings of the late Virginia Satir, a social worker and “pioneer of family therapy.” It proposes a family communication paradigm, which was developed in the 1960s, and focuses on self-awareness and the discovery of inner strengths to help individuals, couples, and families better cope with stress and change and ways to create more positive relationships with others.
The 7-day training will be held at the School of Work from Sunday, July 26 to Saturday, August 1, 2015. This is a unique opportunity to participate in an intimate, small group intensive training session. 44 NBCC-approved credit hours are offered. Program fees are all-inclusive and cover tuition, hotel, transportation from hotel to campus, and most meals.
The summer 2015 session is limited to 25 participants and is expected to fill quickly.
For more information and to register, visit the Satir Clinical Program website. 
If you have questions, contact Erin Murphy, Satir program coordinator, at or (919) 962-4011.
