This presentation highlights the person of Carl Whitaker drawing from his book ‘Midnight Musings of a Family Therapist’. The person of the therapist, undermines the professional clinician role we are required to identify with for a number of reasons. Professionalism, can dis-empower the family system from self-correction and self-reorganisation. This workshop will also explore why family therapy has lost its place among treatment modalities, and how we might re-energise family therapy.
Boudi Maassen was a late entrant into the world of counselling, starting his employment as an adolescent and family therapist with the Ted Noffs Foundation in 1996 at the ripening age of 46, and in continuous private practice in individual, couple and family therapy, since 2000. Boudi’s prior profession was in community development in New Zealand, and before that a self-employed Carpenter. His many layers of experiences, has shaped his responsiveness and curiosity to those people that show up in his practice.
