Satir Change Model

Hi AXENites,

Virginia Satir the luminary in the field of psychology developed a model for the typical process of psychological change in humans.

Virginia Satir Model identified 6 Stages of Change:
1). Status Quo - People in this "Status Quo" stage may feel dissatisfied, unhappy, stuck - and this is often reflected in stress, overwhelm, depression or dissatisfaction. There will be denial or avoidance of what's really going on, and the person may be using unhealthy or outdated coping mechanisms like working long hours, shopping, alcohol or overuse of social media or television.

2). Introduction of a Foreign (new) Element - a new mode of being or existing is introduced, the person ventures out of their comfort zone and endeavors to attempt a new form or mode of being in the world.

3). Chaos - In this stage you are dealing with uncertainty at its highest as shifts and changes are at their peak, people move from a place of safety and "usualness" to a state of chaos or disequilibrium. This is possibly the most important and difficult stage for deep lasting change.

4). Transformational Idea/Thought/Integration - From the chaos emerges a new paradigm and set of principles that form a new integral part of the identity of the individual.

5). Practice - repetition makes permanent. Like Aristotle famously said, “You are what you repeatedly do”

6). New Status Quo! - the new identity is integrated.

See you on the Mountaintop,
