dc.description.abstract This article casts into relief the essentialist-existential philosophy implicit in Satir’s model of healing using Paul Tillich’s systematic philosophical framework. Parallels between Satir’s model of the person are drawn with Tillich’s ontological categories of essence and existence, individualization and participation, and destiny and freedom. Congruence as the integration of elements in three vital human dimensions: the interpersonal, intrapsychic, and spiritual-universal, is correlated with Tillich’s philosophical understanding of “salvation.” The religious quest is understood as a systemic, multidimensional process that brings the interactive and interdependent personal, interpersonal and spiritual dimensions into a restored unity. Thus Satir’s rehumanization project and Tillich’s religious quest are shown to coincide. KEY WORDS: Satir; Tillich; congruence; essentialism; salvation; religious; spiritual. en
