Society has an image of what they should think and research which is considered a theoretical approach. Sociologist use three methods of research to gather their evidence these methods are called structural-functional, social-conflict, and symbolic-interaction approach. These approaches help us understand a family and how they operate. They show there are various methods and observations on how families are able to connect. Structural-functional approach is a complex system in which the parts work together.
Homelessness effects many individual’s health, but the most severe is with infants and children. The infants and children are relying on the parent(s) to take care of them, and when they are unable to afford housing, it causes the children to not trust the parent(s) and are put under more stress than they are already feeling by trying to grasp reality. There is also the issue with domestic abuse victims with women and men that cause serious issues and tension with trust and security between individuals. The society is barely doing anything to help prevent homelessness and are instead complaining that it is a governmental issue and they have to solve it. When this occurs, it just becomes one large bickering battle that does not get anything solved.
This paper will analysis the Pederson Family case study (Ledger 2015) and will discuss the presenting issues, the family constellation, the Barker and Hodes (2008) Common Assessment Framework (including the children’s developments requirements, parenting capability, and the extended family, community and environmental factors).

They would need to shift their thoughts and focus by learning the ways on how to process positive and adaptive thoughts. Their communications skills have to change in order to improve and modified the behavior that is dysfunctional (Charlie Walter Memorial Trust (2017). The family as a unit and individual needs to learn how to self-regulate. According to (Thomlinson, 2016) give us an example of implementing Cognitive Behavioral Family therapy. Family problems must be defined on specifics behaviors.
“An internal working model is a representation in the mind that includes aspects of self, the attachment figure, situational invariants for attachment interactions, and the affects that connect the two figures. Internal working models are based on a prior history of attachment relationships plus current interactions between the self and the attachment figure when the attachment behavioral system is activated. In addition, internal working models define the rules by which two individuals interact, including behaviors, feelings, and thoughts. These rules allow each individual to anticipate and plan (correctly or incorrectly) what the other person will do a preceding set of actions…” (p.8). Internal working models are developed within the child through the experience he
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 institution of marriage is deeply rooted in our society and serves as the bedrock for establishing healthy families and children. This institution has sociological, legal, and religious underpinnings which act as a starting point for historians and social scientists to study human evolution in the area of gender dynamics, human relationships, and kinship systems. An institution of this significance has guided kingdoms and created foreign alliances such as Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon. Granted, few Americans are royalty or boast a royal lineage; but many can resonate with the experience of Henry VIII or Catherine of Aragon 's plight when a marriage takes the trajectory of divorce. Fortunately, exile and beheadings are no longer options for men seeking a divorce.
My interviewee’s father did not immigrant to the USA until ten years later, which caused a lot of trauma in Akadina’s life because she did not have a father figure during her most difficult time, which was her teenage years. While hearing Akadina speak about the structure of her family, it allowed me to see the differences between our families. Akadina was raised for a couple of years in a traditional home were there were a father and a mother. On the other hand, I was raised by a single mother and I have four siblings. I did not meet my father until I was 21 years old.
The diversity of family forms in modern American society has many individuals questioning how complex family might be. The United States is made up of diverse groups of people that are constantly changing its culture norms, customs, and traditions.
