“The Family Chessboard” method was devised in 1995 as a vehicle for creating differentiation, integration, and awareness for and of change in the family. It was devised by Dr Sandra Neil and Dr Robert Silverberg to adapt Virginia Satir’s notion of sculpting families to a more limited environment, where physical movement of family members in the consulting room is impractical or undesirable. It allows one or all members of the family to be symbolically represented in a complex three-dimensional “chessboard and pieces” interaction. The language that the person uses is their own, and the chess pieces are labelled and named explicitly to fit with the perceptions of that person, and make the rules of the family explicit. Family bonds and triangulations, the boundaries of each family, the affectional and power roles, gender issues and occupational issues are identified and often can be transformed using this brief, intensive, and process oriented method.
