The goal of a structural family is to express the strengths in each other in critical moments, and helping each other through it. Developmental theory is the methods used as the viewpoint of family tasking and development through phases of life (Edelman, 2014).

According to Horne (2002) intervention and planning therapy are closely connected. The primary purpose of the initial interventions and the practices chosen must be contingent upon the nature of the issue being presented as well as the physiotherapist security with a specific method, for example, “cognitive, group, and behavioral rehabilitation” (para. 1). Treatment planning and interventions relate to solving substance abuse issues and the problem that will be identified during the physiotherapist process. And, if intervention is determined, the mission is to effectively resolve the difficulties and work to seek modification for the current issues. There are various phases of presenting problems which can be labelled in terms of spousal problems, close relative issues, as well as extended-family difficulties wherein each stage requires its own exclusive therapy treatment.

The Bateson Project was definitely one of the biggest influences in Family Therapy to date, because of the incredible ideas that the brilliant minds at Palo Alto came up with. In 1952, Gregory Bateson assembled a young research team in Palo Alto, California, to study human and animal interaction. Each member ended up years later becoming key figures in family therapy: John Weakland, Jay Haley, Virginia Satir, Don Jackson and later Paul Watzlawick. They started studying hypnosis, films, dogs and psychotherapy. In 1956, a major contribution to family therapy today occurred with the paper that provided the initial examination of interaction in families. This was the phenomenon that was called the double bind. "The essential hypothesis of the double
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. There is a growing complexity and diversity in families. Family systems theory provides a foundation for analysis of such complex and diversified families, making it easy to understand for effective therapy (Zastrow &
Emotional cut off is an extreme measure when a family member no longer interacts with the others emotionally, becoming isolated in their function and in their exchange with the rest of the family members. This concept is important to the functioning of a three generational genogram. When a family member displays emotional cut off, the anxiety of the family is spread across lesser members, with this particular member’s isolation creating even more anxiety and pressure upon the family. In extension, this cut off not only impacts the immediate family, but it disseminates itself across the generational boundaries (Dr Murray Bowen, 2014). In turn family members may try to replace this relationship with another one, creating a potential for vulnerability and let downs.
Families are said to constitute realities in which most of one’s attributes are constructed, based on the family interactions, beliefs, values as well as the behaviours that are seen in the specific families one is brought up into (Archer & McCarthy, 2007).
The purpose of this paper is to discuss four types of family approaches and provide examples of how to implement appropriate nursing interventions. The four types of family approaches discussed are family as context, as client, as a system, and as a component of society. Each type of family approach is defined and described in detail. An example from my personal experience for each type of family approach discussed is provided to augment the topic. The conclusion provides an overview of the papers contents and identifies the main points discussed to result with improved awareness of how to care for the family as a unit in nursing.
