Pedro Martins, Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist. He earned his Master’s and Doctoral degrees from the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. He is the cofounder of “Therapeutic Interventions,” which is an online project that aims to offer honest and uncomplicated knowledge about practice for therapists. This is done through media communication and an online course. He is a member of the Taos Institute, and a faculty member at several family therapy programs in Brazil, such as the ConversAções Institute, the Family Therapy Institute of São Paulo, and the Family Therapy Institute of Minas Gerais. He believes research and practice about therapy should always walk together, and he focuses his work on understanding processes of change with individuals, couples and families in clinical and mental health contexts. Selected publications include “Conversation resources for clinical practice with families in mental health” (with S. McNamee and C. Guanaes-Lorenzi, 2017) and “Family as a discursive achievement: A relational account” (with S. McNamee and C. Guanaes-Lorenzi, 2014).
