ABSTRACT

Focusing on Virginia Satir’s Parts Party method, the author discusses its potential uses in helping therapists to expand self-concept and develop their personal resources. Both of these goals inevitably enrich the therapy process and increase therapists’ versatility. The various phases in conducting a Parts Party are described with enough detail to give the reader a sense of the process and its potential benefits. A number of variations of the Parts Party are also included to stimulate the reader’s creativity and to encourage the development of spin-offs.
