Minuchin, Salvador  

Catheleen Jordan and David Cory

Salvador Minuchin, MD (1921–2017), was a founder of structural family therapy, challenging the prevailing Freudian individual therapy that was the norm in the 1960s. Utilizing live team supervision, structural family therapy focused on relationships between family members with the therapist assuming an action-oriented approach. Minuchin offered direct help to restructure dysfunctional family behaviors and a faulty family hierarchy.
