This ended up apparent through a specific population, for instance, lower socio-economic classes, and population with extreme social issues coming from poverty. During the 1960s, Haley alongside Cloe Madanes started creating elective models for working with families utilizing more arrangement centered systems, and their model wound up known as SFT (Keim, 2012). Haley and Madanes combined Erikson and Milan’s therapy model together to formulate SFT. SFT combines two major therapeutic models - strategic therapy and family therapy - a combination of therapies that necessitate a carefully crafted plan to effectively oversee or improve a family’s problems or issues (Madanes, 1991). “Strategic therapy is any type of therapy where the therapist initiates what happens during therapy and designs a particular approach for each problem” (Santisteban, Suarez-Morales, Robbins & Szapocznik, 2006).
The tension within their family pushes them more toward depression, making Loman uses death as a release, and Ilyich feels even more painful about his illness. However, the caring and support from the Loman family causes the essential difference between he and Ilyich, death for Loman is nothing to afraid of because part of the reasons he committed suicide is that he believes that it can bring freedom to not only him, but also his family. However, Ivan Ilyich spends a long time trying to accept his family and the misfortune he has encountered, and his death is not as meaningful as it is supposed to be because his family shows him little care about him even after he passed away. Even though the realities Ilyich and Loman has experienced are similar, the love and support from family eventually makes their death have different meaning. While Loman’s suicide is a release for both his family and him, Ilyich’s death is nothing special but the end of his own
According to Kelly and Wade, Zack often loses his temper and becomes argumentative. Additionally, Zack has stated that he resents not only Wade for trying to become a parent, but also Wes for taking his mother's attention. His behaviors are causing his family distress as well; These behaviors do fit the criterion for an oppositional defiant disorder. However, the behaviors associated with individuals with oppositional defiant disorder do not include aggression toward others and destroying property, both of which Zack has partaken in.
In the end, his sympathy lies more with Mr. Gillespie and he reasons that Darl’s action is nefarious enough to have him hospitalized. In choosing to use qualifiers such as “almost” and “in a way,” Cash chooses to edge on the side of caution. Even he is afraid of completely agreeing with Darl, adhering to social norms instead of standing up to his family for Darl’s necessary action. Cash recognizes
Although, this is not the only conflict in the story. Not only does the narrator struggle with helping his brother but he also blames himself for Sonny's outcome in life. He promised his mother to look after Sonny when she passed because "he ain't going to have nobody to look out for him" (259). The narrator seems to take on the responsibility of Sonny's fallen actions because he was off in the Army and left Sonny with Isabel's parents.
Yet, imagine a scenario in which that terrible experience was not heartbreaking. Imagine a scenario in which is just blame and recollections that you decline to relinquish. Cristian and Sebastian have something in like manner, which is relinquishing the past, living in the present, and investigating what's to come. In the story "The Good Brother" Sebastian takes after a tad bit of Chris.
By not telling anyone that memories have come back to him, the narrator will complicate his grieving process. Rather than focusing on his present life, the narrator dedicates a substantial amount of his time to analyzing Phaedrus’ life, and beliefs that he had. Jeffreys states that “Old, unresolved loss will complicate the grieving process . . . . The learned personal style of dealing with life issues . . . will influence how much and how long the person grieves” (Jeffreys 42)
It has become common for people to dismiss the reality of war. For this reason, Krebs shies away from society, with problems of revealing his intrusive thoughts to others. This social withdrawal expanded towards his family when his mother voices her worrisome throughout paragraph 65. Apparently, she was aware of the “temptations” that were exposed to Krebs, while his father believes Krebs lost his ambition. Evidently, the theme of hopelessness looms in the historical background of the
The last theory talked about in this chapter is called symbolic interactionism. Floyd and Morman describe this theory in their book is that it “focuses on the various ways in which humans acquire their individual and relational identities through social interaction” (p. 179, 2014). Although many individuals, if not all, develop meanings of communication through society and culture that surround their environment, but they also develop responses to those meanings by their interaction with others. One of the concepts that develop within stepfamilies in relation to this theory is the idea of role taking.
This indicates that he had a difficult relationship with his father sometimes; he confides to the new owners, his mother would join him. “If she was in the mood, and we 'd plot together--oh, all forms of fantastical things". These lines suggest that both mother and son and possibly his sister as well were the victims of the masterful father. The basement was not a means of punishment for him as a child but instead a refuge from his abusive father. "A--controlled kind of place" wherever plants on the windowsill never perceived to bloom or maybe forever died”.

The Bowenian family therapy helps me understand my family and myself better. Two of the main terms in Bowenian family therapy are differentiation and fusion. Understanding these to terms is important to know how an individual relates with his or her family. Based on an individual’s differentiation or fusion they will interact in the family differently and can become entangled in triangular relationships that can lead to anxiety.
"Cathedral" a story about a man who is annoyed with his wife's old friend that is blind, but ends up teaching him a new way of viewing life. “Walk a mile in my shoes, see what I see, hear what I hear, feel what I feel, THEN maybe you'll understand why I do what I do, 'till then don’t judge me.” The advice to “walk a mile in someone else's shoes” means before judging someone, you must understand their challenges are in life and what they go though. This is clearly expressed in the story “Cathedral” by the narrator himself.
Hey Latonya, I enjoyed reading your post. Blended families are becoming more and more common. There are some blended families in my extended family. One of the problems I have seen is that the stepparent does not feel as if they have any authority to discipline their stepchildren.
A person’s inability to see is often taken for granted as it is in “Cathedral” by Raymond Carver (1981). The title suggests the story is about an actual cathedral, however, it is about two men who are blind, one physically and one figuratively. One of the men is Robert, the physically blind man, a friend of the narrator’s wife; the other is the narrator himself, the figuratively blind man. Carver displays the development of the naïve narrator throughout the story through narration, a moment of epiphany, and symbolism. Carver uses first-person narration to tell the story of “Cathedral”.
