Our next guest is Howard Kahn Ph.D. who shares a bit of history about his relationship with Virginia Satir and the founding International Human Learning Resource Network as well as The Virginia Satir Global Network. He then does a wonderful exercise about connections. "This year is my 50th year of private practice of psychotherapy in New Haven, Connecticut . I am Assistant Clinical Professor at Yale University , where I teach a graduate seminar every year in Family Therapy and Cultural Diversity at the Child Study Center in the Yale University Medical School. At the Child Study Center, I supervise psychotherapy for Psychiatry Residents, Psychology Post Graduate Fellows, and Social Work Fellows. I have also lectured and led workshops in Family Therapy and Gestalt Therapy for mental health professionals in the United States and Europe.
Virginia Satir has always been an inspiration for my work, as well as a dear, close friend for many years. I have regularly attended IHLRN since 1979. Since then, at IHLRN, I’ve had a yearly joyful experience presenting and sharing my thoughts, my feelings, and my work with families, couples, individuals and groups."
