Summary or Abstract : This study examines the symbolic-experiential therapy of Carl Whitaker in relation to traditional systems theory. The symbolic-experiential perspective emerged from the humanistic branch of psychology in the 1960s. It differed from the classical models of systemic theories in that the quality of experience was both the measure of psychological well-being as well as the focus of interventions in therapy. Many in the field who adhered to the traditional systems framework did not believe that this perspective qualified as a purely systemic approach because of its emphasis on emotion and feelings. The author's intent was to examine the similarities and differences between the symbolic-experiential approach and the traditional systemic approach to therapy to determine if there was really a significant difference between the two perspectives. The author hopes that this document will motivate others in the field of marriage and family therapy to do the same by re-examining previous work once considered "non-systemic," to determine if they would be classified as systemic today. Chapter 1 includes an introduction to the life of Carl A. Whitaker, as well as a description of how his career as a family therapist began. Chapter 2 is a comprehensive literature review that (1) chronologically illustrates the history of the development of the symbolic-experiential approach, (2) describes the evolution of Whitaker's thoughts and (3) outlines his contributions to the field of marriage and family therapy. Chapter 3 contains a representative example of the symbolic-experiential approach to therapy. In this chapter, the author transcribed an interview conducted by Whitaker with one family called "A Different Kind of Caring." The interview contained two parts, (1) Whitaker's conversations with the family in the therapy sessions and (2) Whitaker's conversations with William Bumberry where he explains what he did with the family in the therapy sessions. In chapter 3 the author focused solely on Whitaker's conversations with the family to describe what he did from her systemic perspective. In chapter 4, the author focused solely on Whitaker's conversations with Bumberry to describe what he said he did, also from her systemic perspective. Chapter 5 describes the thoughts of those who knew Whitaker well, professionally and personally. The implications of the study for the field of marriage and family therapy as well as areas of future research are also described..
