Focus and Scope

The Satir International Journal offers research and applications for the mental health of individual, and promotes the healthy development of families, groups and organizations in society. Our goals encompass therapeutic communication, equality, spirituality, ethical decision-making and global diversity.

Our sponsor is the Department of Educational Psychology and Leadership Studies at the University of Victoria, in British Columbia, Canada. We appreciate the generosity to be located on the Coast Salish territory, where Virginia Satir offered graduate workshops at the “Haven,” on nearby Gabriola Island.
