John T. Edwards Foundation
Honoring John T. Edwards
The John T. Edwards Foundation is a nonprofit organization that illuminates the legacy of a family systems theorist, teacher, and mentor, who trained generations of clinicians in the art of working with families who otherwise might have learned about family therapy. “I lead because I follow" was the deceptively-simple, elegantly-perceptive philosophical foundation of John Edward's approach to family therapy, as he made the complexity of collective human behavior accessible to professionals in diverse areas of service. The John T. Edwards Foundation sustains the life work of the "Southern Gentleman of family therapy", through the preservation of his collections and manuscripts, training and education in his techniques, technical support to academic institutions, agencies, communities and distribution of his publications. We invite you to join us as we sustain the contributions of an enlightened soul who empowered students and colleagues...with a wry grin...to follow him into the crucible of family dynamics.
