Systems-Centered Practice presents a series of papers that trace the development of the theory of living human systems between 1987 and 2002. As the theory develops, so do the methods and techniques that put it into practice. The book also describes in detail the connection between the hierarchy of defence modification and the specific phases of system development that determine readiness for change. The papers in this volume contribute to our knowledge of the permeability of the boundaries between clinical and social psychology through the investigation of living human systems, and of systems-centered group and individual therapy. The author’s considerable body of work constitutes a blend of creativity and learning of the highest order.

Reviews and Endorsements

'New innovations attract adherents who share the excitement of discovery, who practice amongst themselves these new ways of understanding the life we live in groups. Yvonne’s work has significantly changed our understandings of sociality, and her contributions are receiving their well-merited recognition.'
- Malcolm Pines, from the Foreword

'Dr. Agazarian has done what few of us have dared. She has developed, watered, weeded and grown her own theory of systems and groups, and woven her work into a broad-based training environment that spans the globe. [...] We could ask for no better gift to the Academy, or for all of us trying to know and help people in groups.'
- Anne Alonso, Ph.D. Clinical Professor, Harvard Medical School; Distinguished Life Fellow, The American Group Psychotherapy Association
