Time running out to register for Satir Summer Intensive Training

Time is running out to register for the Satir Summer Intensive Training, which will be held in Chapel Hill from July 17-22. To avoid missing out on this unique opportunity, interested participants should register by July 10. Registrations after this date will be considered if space is available.

This dynamic, experiential training provides social workers, therapists, and other professionals with powerful tools for increasing successful outcomes in therapeutic, organizational, and personal settings through deeper and more authentic communication. Based on the groundbreaking work of family therapy pioneer Virginia Satir, the Satir Growth Model offers a valuable framework for improving the communication skills necessary for creating positive change during times of stress, conflict, and transition.

The training will be led by experienced co-facilitators Jean McLendon, LCSW, LMFT and Hugh Gratz, MSW, LCSW as well as a dedicated team of apprentice trainers.

Training fees are $1,500 per individual or $1,200 per person in groups of three or more. Scholarships are available for students and others needing financial assistance. Please visit the Satir website at for more information on the summer training, other UNC Satir Program courses, or for information about Virginia Satir and the Satir Growth Model.
