Abstract

Is there a need for evil in order to define ourselves? Is there a need to perceive individual therapy as an evil in order to define family therapy? Is there a need to perceive family therapy as an evil in order to define individual therapy? Is it going to be the individual therapist versus the family therapist? Are we going to spend all of our time today and down through the corridors of Lime debating this, fighting with each other? Can we really put it together in some way that is meaningful and useful, defining what we do, not on the basis of the split, but just on what we do? And, can we in some way encompass it all in a unity which comes back to the idea of one approach?
