Family problems must be defined on specifics behaviors. We could integrated a family base approach along with a strength based (Kerig, 2010) approach to empower each of the family members. The family as a unit would need to be assess and also, as individuals. Through assessments the therapy informs him/herself about what has been the trauma implicated in each of the family members and the patters that behaviors have caused. Psychoeducation should be provided and that way everyone in the family can be educated.
The Family Systems Theory Family systems theory is a framework for understanding families and their strengths and dysfunctions. The strengths identified among family relations can be used to help solve existing problems. The same applies with problems identified. The family system theory is based on Bowen’s theory which argues that people cannot leave independent of each other’s network of relationships. People within a family are connected emotionally, which affects their overall well being and social relations and behaviour.

The level of protection for Troy and Kim depends on their mental faculties. Their caregivers have educated and informed Troy and Kim of the responsibility of parenting several times. At this point, the dilemma of their situation is whether informed consent outweighs the possibility of harm. Harm may include the stress of the birth control removal, the stress of pregnancy and child rearing, the negative impacts on the child due to possible parenting mishaps, and the stresses for Troy and Kim’s support network as they witness and support the child and parents’ care. Respect for Persons and Beneficence are the competing morals at this
He saw the need for an attachment between child and caregiver as a basic biological need. Like Freud he believed that the fundamental part of a child’s identity is established in a child’s early development, therefore any trauma or failure of this attachment could have a long lasting effect into later life as an adult. The assumption here is that the absence of attachment in childhood between Sarah and her parents, could be a reason why there are issues in her own relationship with her daughter. The attachment theory presents that the cause of Hannah’s difficulties might be due to the fact that Sarah never had a secure attachment figure in her childhood, so therefore doesn’t know how to be one in Hannah’s life. Coincidently, neither Sarah nor Hannah have had a secure relationship with their fathers.
Although Bowen’s family systems theory, and Bowlby’s attachment theory are unique with their own thoughts and perceptions, both of the theories can also be taken as different viewpoints of the same human experience, specifically the development of relationship patterns and human attachment. Both theories touch upon the influence that unsolved problems in the parents may have on their children. Attachment theory focuses more on the infant’s first attachment, or primary attachment. This is usually between the mother and the infant. If the attachment is interrupted and the infant’s needs are not being met by the primary attachment, mother, this could adversely affect the infant’s cognitive and mental development as well as future attachments.

Intervention and Theories Intervention and theories are best supported after a multidimensional assessment is completed. Assessments provide a historical overview and identifies all areas of concerns, gaps in care, and any other goals for improvement. The member has an extensive history of sexual, physical, and psychological abuse. Strength based theory is the best approach when working with the member because it will provide a foundation to build interventions upon. "Integration of strengths within the complex and often negatively skewed narrative may re socialize potential clients to perceive that psychotherapy is not only about untwisting their distorted thinking or restoring their troubled relationships, it is also about learning
The theory looks at many aspects of the family such as atmosphere, constellation, and goals, plus, respect is given to both children and adults. In this system interventions are suggested for children and adults. The limitations of the Family Systems Theory are, too much is focused on homeostasis at the expense of change and patterns at the expense of unpredictability. Moreover, on the system at the expense of the individuals. A positivistic intellectual tradition that puts the researcher outside the system in search of strengths and limitations of the theory of the family (Turner & West, 1998).
