Introduction The Rodgers family, David (the father), Kathleen (step-mother) and Michelle (daughter), sought therapy through a recommendation from Michelle’s guidance counselor. With the Rodger’s family, there are issues regarding culture and ethnicity. Not aware of the influence of race, ethnicity, cultural, and gender are all connected by what comes before and after. Through the lens of Strategic Family Therapy, this paper will explore the approaches and techniques used to help the Rodgers family.
Family diagnosis based on living systems theory makes it possible to determine whether pathology lies in a family as a whole, in one or more individual members, or in a suprasystein, such as an economically disadvantaged neighborhood or a school with limited resources. The range of interventions available to families is considerable. The health, mental health, social service, pastoral care, and educational systems all deal with family problems. The field of marriage counseling has specifically focused on one aspect of the family, and family service agencies handle all aspects of the family.
Especially, when family members need help adjusting to a new set of individuals or familiar attitudes, goals, and behaviors. Most importantly, incorporating a therapeutic system which supports a family system Minuchin’s Structural Family Therapy consisting of four steps: questions about the presenting issues occurring within the family structure, assist family members to perceive how their interactions execute through present problems, explore past problems, and emphasis on the interactions among the adults and their perspective. “The structural family therapy system focuses on the needs and changes of the family system and the solutions for a family system with a brief therapeutic approach (ten sessions) to be precise” (Helm,
Definitions of Family Clarification and Reunification For the purposes of this guide, family clarification and family reunification are two very different steps in a much longer process to family safety. Family clarification refers to the process designed for family members to talk about the harm caused and the impact on everyone within the family system (Schladale, n.d.). The process is conducted under the supervision of professionals who can facilitate the acknowledgement and or apology, discuss the needs of the child who was harmed, the needs and capacity of the family, and consider the options for any safe contact. The clarification process will change dramatically depending upon the age of the child who has been harmed; the age of
Although understandably overwhelmed, Family B appeared to comprehend the information reviewed by each specialist, reinforced by the MRI and ultrasound images shared, as each provider used the teach back method to evaluate the parents’ understanding and repeatedly asked if they had any questions. A folder of contact information for each specialist was offered that also included FAQ sheets on all medical diagnoses. Each of the physicians encouraged the parents to contact them with additional questions they might have following the meeting. As a parent, I think it would be helpful to also have contact information for a support group or family mentor who has a child with a similar diagnosis to address any concerns about quality of life for the child and family across the
In her book, she explains to professionals and mothers on how to see and attend to children. Not only does she refer to some of her colleagues who have experienced and felt the sadness within the children’s voice, but also seen the causes and the positive and negative influence of neglect and abuse. The book is all about policies that help in the safeguard of children and also how the community can understand and relate to these kids. Finally, she explains the process of child protection and how treatment is to be administered to the affected
The researcher will receive training in human subject research. After obtaining the ethical approval, all nurses and department managers will be informed about the study, its purpose, and its significance. Participants will be chosen from different departments and during different shifts with helping of the department managers. Randomization will be stratiﬁed by gender and age (males and females, age from 18-35, and males and female, age from 36-55). To prevent subversion of randomization, the statistician will hold the randomization list, releasing an assignment once a participant consents and is eligible.
the care of others became the seal. The functional model of nursing is a method of providing patient care whereby each licensed and unlicensed staff member performs specific tasks for a large group of patients. These tasks are determined in part by the scope of the practice defined for each type of caregiver. For example, the RN should be responsible for all evaluations, although the LPN / LVN and the UAPs can collect data that can be used in the evaluation. With respect to treatments, an RN can administer all medications intravenously (IV) and make admissions, one LPN / LVN can provide treatments, another LPN / LVN can administer all oral medications, one assistant can perform all the tasks of hygiene and another assistant can take all the signs (Figure 13-2).
So to deliver the developmentally appropriate nursing care nurses has to consider the family coping abilities, social-cultural environment, family beliefs and values along with their background, involvement in treatment and recovery process, and the stress of the child and family during the child hospitalization. Also, it’s important to inform the parents about the progress and condition of child and discharge plan so they can provide support to the other family members and siblings and can retain back to their work or business, like Anne’s parents have their own Indian restaurant, as per the
In Part B of the paper, the writer will describe the structure and culture of the family origin from a Bowenian perspective. The Bowenian perspective allows the family members to think about where their problem(s) originate and try to come up with a plan to prevent the problem from spreading to the next generation and discuss the strength and problem areas in the family concerning health. According to Yarhouse and Sells, "Bowenian family therapy is helpful in assisting individual family members to differentiate between thinking and feeling and in recognizing boundaries between family members." (483) Approaching any situation the family needs to know their limitations with each other and different activities and food.
Dearden & Becker (2004) identified that the responsibilities exhibited by young carers depends upon the nature of the illness, which can include physical, mental, learning or sensory disabilities. Many researchers identify general caring responsibilities to include emotional support, domestic care, both looking after the adult and other siblings (Michail and Smyth:2010) However, as Becker and Aldridge (2003) highlighted the importance of establishing whether those caring for parental mental illnesses have distinct and particular needs. Similarly, Cox and Pakenham (2014) conducted research into measurement and structure of a measure called the Young Carer of Parents Inventory (YCOPI). The results suggest that there is a considerable difference in caregiving experiences within the range of young carers who were accessed by the YCOPI-A.
Mental health illnesses affect the client and his/her family/caregiver (Eichhorn, n.d.). The stress of caring for loved ones with mental health issues can very stressful and overwhelming for the family/caregiver. We offer support for the caregivers to help them learn to cope and handle the stress of taking care of their family member. Many of these clients have problems staying on their medication (Eichhorn, n.d.). It is important for the family/caregiver to understand the importance of the client to stay on their medication.

Danette Glassy (pediatrician), Carolyn Stolov (family-life expert at care.com) and Dr. Karen Sheehan (medical director) are three people that support my view point. They point out different concerns a parent should have when searching for the right child care facility, and they help the parents in ways to question the facility and get the comforts they need. When a parent is concerned about the supervision, these three suggest the parents to “drop in or volunteer from time-to-time to check out how things are managed.” They also say to check about child ratio within that facility. They also say to “watch to make sure the staff is following the health and safety rules” to make sure the staff is being properly trained.
