Usually psychology is utilized to explain arts. The authors in this paper utilize arts to make us more close to Carl A. Whitaker family psychotherapist. His style of symbolic experiential psychotherapy and his way of making a psychotherapeutic intervention is always a creative way, more similar to a work of art. He gets directly to the family using an indirect metaphorical, allusive, symbolical and humoristic language. He disrupts the family and patient mind fixity to open new scenery in order to increase their creativity, thus allowing and facilitating changes. The psychotherapy room becomes then a magic place as many patients and fascinated, lucky psychotherapists, who had the opportunity of working with him, used to say.
