The symbol in Chinese for crisis is made up of two ideographs: one means danger, the other means opportunity. This symbol is a reminder that we can choose to turn a crisis into an opportunity or into a negative experience." -Virginia Satir


The SATIR CHANGE MODEL is an easy to follow model on the journey of change. When we cope with unexpected or significant change, we predictably move through six stages: Old Status Quo, Resistance, Chaos, Integration, Practice, and New Status Quo. Although developed in the context of family therapy, the model has been widely adopted to describe systems and organisational change.


The Satir Model describes the phases we go through as we experience significant change. It helps people improve lives by transforming the way we see and express ourselves.
