This session, recorded in 1988 by the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and digitally remastered in 2009, features Ivan Boszmormenyi-Nagy conducting a live, unedited therapy session with a family. The featured family includes four generations consisting of a delinquent adolescent, his chronically phycotic mother, grandparents and great-grandmother. Instead of reframes, paradoxical injunctions of restructuring, Nagy’s model employs multidirected partiality, which includes discussing and acknowledging everyone’s positive contributions to counter their mistrust, blaming and self-defeating invisible loyalties.
