A multi-level, multi-focal, multi-voiced journey

not without family therapy—not with family therapy alone

Kyriaki Polychroni

pp. 187-212

In this chapter the author shares a narrative of her scientific journey from its origins to its today's originality. Theoretical concepts developed at the Athenian Institute of Anthropos such as the "Multi-level, Multi-focal Model of Intervention", "Subjective Culture" and "Cultural Chronos and the Multiplicity of Inner Voices' are presented. Methods of application that include "Systemic Group Therapy" and Experiential Training in Family Dynamics/Therapy are described showing how the integration of other modalities into family therapy models can optimize our systemic practice. Weaved throughout the chapter are more personal experiences that illustrate the author's development. In closure, the author shares aspects of her current clinical practice where she has incorporated Attachment Theory in systemic therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) in working with couples and families.
