He was a founder of the Group-Analytic Practice and of the Institute of Group-Analysis, and a founder and first chairman of the Institute of Family Therapy, London. A fantastic book that has the potential to change your life - if only because you might see your life differently. The book takes the form of a series of dialogues between Skynner, playing the role of therapist, and Cleese, who adopts the role of inquisitive lay person. But if you ever wanted to know why some families get along and others don't, in broad terms, I'd recommend this book highly.

The important posts he successfully filled were senior tutor (psychotherapy) at the Institute of Psychiatry, honorary assistant consultant psychiatrist at Bethlem Royal and Maudsley Hospital and physician in charge of the Department of Psychiatry at Queen Elizabeth Hospital for Children, London.Ale po raz kolejny, autorzy chcą powiedzieć za dużo, za wiele wytłumaczyć, przez co jest zbyt ogólna i po łebkach. The structure is roughly chronological in that it discusses human life from starting a relationship to first baby and the child's developmental stages up to the child being sexually mature and ready for marriage. I don't agree with every word - the recommendations about strict discipline for children seem over-harsh to me, for instance - but much of what's said is revelatory and fascinating. I also wonder if psychiatrists etc even still have these same beliefs, since the book was written almost 30 years ago now. If you are very awkward, shy, not fully engaged with an active social life, this book could cause you to get more withdrawn and confused.

It takes the form of a conversation between English funnyman, John Cleese and his psychologist, Robin Skinner. In the mid-1970s, Cleese and his first wife, Connie Booth, co-wrote and starred in the British sitcom Fawlty Towers. Robin Skynner will be remembered for his prolific writing; he authored One Flesh: Separate Persons, Principles of Family and Marital Psychotherapy (1976), Explorations with Families: Group-Analysis and Family Therapy (1987), Institutes and How to Survive Them: Mental Health Training and Consultation (1989), Family Matters (1995), Families and How to Survive Them (1975), and Life and How to Survive It.Families and How to Survive Them is a bestselling self-help book co-authored by the psychiatrist and psychotherapist Robin Skynner and the comedian John Cleese. Não é um livro fácil de ler pela quantidade de informação transmitida, muitas vezes me revi nas situações faladas e isso às vezes pode doer. Written as conversations between John Cleese (of Fawlty Towers fame) and his family therapist, Robin Skynner.

I first read this about twelve years ago, and found it extremely helpful in understanding my sons better.

He then began his psychiatric training, and in 1957, he passed the Diploma of Psychological Medicine.
