Schizophrenia, Alcoholism, Double Binds: System Theory origins

Is there a pattern where you see a system is stuck? In the 1960s-1970s, anthropologist Gregory Bateson was working with cases of schizophrenia and alcoholism, leading to the development of systems theories on double-binds.

This session will review the history of development of ideas that have now become canon in personal and group development.
