The authors explain the style of C.A. Whitaker by the presentation of a session of psychotherapy. His way of making psychotherapeutic interventions is always a creative way. He gets directly to the family using an indirect, metaphorical, allusive, humoristic language. He disrupts the family ad patients mind fixity and offers new opportunity for change. In the psychotherapy room we see unpredictable and unusual events. The relatively unexpected future and the high grade of freedom in the family should be considered the normality. In this sample also the play during the session in very important and useful for didactics. Key words: metaphor, play, symbolic, absurd, craziness.
