Watzlawick leaned on Gregory Bateson's, Don Jackson's and Milton Erickson's theories and strategies. He worked for 46 years at the Mental Research Institute (Palo Alto), and was one of its central pillars. He applied the systemic theory, cybernetics and constructivist perspective to the field of communication, and was one of the founders of brief therapy. He authored several books that have had wide resonance. He was very receptive to the perspectives that criticized and supplemented his own positions: the constructionist, the strategic, the experiential, the psychoanalytical, the feminist and the social perspectives.
