SIP Stages of Change presented at an SIP Community Meeting April 17, 2020


This podcast by Freedom To Move Group interviews John Banmen, who shares about his personal history with Virginia Satir and his perspective on what is central to the model. One idea, of many, that stands out is that beyond family therapy Virginia’s model was a model for living; how to be fully human and fully alive.


To learn more about shame with Madeleine, Danielle Braun-Kaufman, Sharon Loeschen and Teresa McLellan plus many others.  Not only is the host one of our own members Dr Madeleine Delittle but many of her guests are also members


This is a podcast about personal transformation as it relates to mental, physical and spiritual well being. The conversations are inspired by the work of Virginia Satir, the famous family therapist.  Again many speakers or guests on this show are long time members of SIP or VSGN
