Experiential Family Therapy

Therapists who come under the ''experiential'' rubric tend to eschew theory. Instead, they join the family

Family Therapy system and allow themselves to become involved in the intense interactions between the family members. Carl Whitaker and Walter Kempler are the best-known proponents of this approach. They do not offer us a consistent theory, but rather trust their instincts, or what Whitaker called, "The accumulated and organized residue of experience, plus the freedom to allow the relationship to happen, to be who you are with the minimum of anticipatory set and maximum responsiveness to authenticity and to our own growth impulses.'' This school of therapy is probably best experienced; if you cannot do that, the next best thing is to read the writings of Whitaker, Kempler, and their ilk.
