Mara Selvini Palazzoli (1916-1999) was an Italian psychiatrist and founder in 1971, with Gianfranco Cecchin, Luigi Boscolo and Giuliana Prata, of the systemic and constructivist approach to family therapy which became known as the Milan systems approach. Worked with families of schizophrenic and anorexic children. With her colleagues, she developed a therapuetic model that is based on Gregory Bateson's cybernetics theory.

Her work is considered theoretically groundbreaking, dramatic in style, and powerful in its impact clinically. Appreciations of her work continued throughout her career and in her obituaries.[1] [2]
