The Virginia Satir Global Network
In 1977, Virginia founded the Avanta Network, now known as
The Virginia Satir Global Network,
a non-profit educational
organization whose members represent a wide range of professions. The Virginia Satir Global Network's
mission is to support, connect, and empower people and organizations through
the Satir Growth Model to respect differences, transform conflicts, develop
possibilities for change and growth, and enable people to take responsibility
for their own lives, health, work and relationships. The Virginia Satir Global Network is the umbrella
organization for the Manitoba Satir Institute and sponsors workshops, advanced training programs, and international summer training institutes and
conferences for professionals around the world.
Currently, there are 250 Virginia Satir Global Network members in over 18 countries as well
as 26 international Satir Institutes. Members come from a wide variety of professional
fields and life-styles.
