Description: "The transition from an individual- to a relationship-oriented paradigm constitutes the decisive epistemological turning point in the evolution of psychotherapy during the twentieth century." So starts this remarkable book chapter by two family therapists.
The authors trace the development of systems therapy for families and its tension with the more traditional orientation of psychotherapy and medicine around the individual. They then widen the focus to include many family forms and the context within which families exist - communities and community and social organizations, such as schools. This broader and muli-layered orientation is then illuminated by the school-based, community-oriented Family program.

Description: This publication emerged from a workshop hosted by the Institute of Development Studies at Dunford House Conference and Training Centre, 25-27 April 2005. The workshop formed an important milestone in the wider initiative on ‘Learning and Teaching for Transformation' (LTT), begun in 2002. But meaningful participation requires learning, changes in behaviour, attitudes and power relationships. What are the relationships between education, participation and social change? What needs to be learned, and how, in order to achieve transformation of individuals and society? And where and with what means should such learning be convened?
