(October 13, 1921 – October 30, 2017) was a family therapist
born and raised in San Salvador, Entre Ríos
, Argentina. He developed structural family therapy
, which addresses problems within a family by charting the relationships between family members, or between subsets
of family (Minuchin, 1974). These charts represent power dynamics as well as the boundaries between different subsystems. The therapist tries to disrupt dysfunctional relationships within the family, and cause them to settle back into a healthier pattern.
