Family therapy is helpful to families that have trouble, problems, or issues within the system, which helps with families members improve communication and resolved conflicts. I believe that if a therapist was supposed to come and help my family with whatever problem there is, it will be successful. In the book, it states that relatively recent research related to common factors that cut across approaches focuses on how effective therapists bring "successful" models to life( blow et al 2007 pg341). I feel as though in most cases that is true. The therapist is most effective when among other behaviors they are able to build an alliance and engage with clients, great sense of hope, which I feel as that every individual or family needs, and the expectation of positive outcome.
The NASW Code of Ethics’ Connection to the Sanchez family Case The Sanchez family is a multigenerational family, not unlike other families living in the United States. Current person-in-environment conditions and lifestyle choices hinder the capability to improve their quality of life. Intervention from competent and committed professionals will change the dynamic challenges the family faces. Two distinguished goals in the social work profession identified in the National Association of Social Works’ Code of Ethics (NASW, 2008). Ethical Responsibilities to Clients As the NASW (2008) specifies, social workers are called to promote the well-being of their clients.
(SUCG). The aim of this reflective account is to reflect back on an interview intervention with a member of the service user carer group, who was seeking respite care for her son with special needs ad autism. Reflection is important because it leads to better social work practice and it enhances professional development (Maclean, 2010). Reflection also allows me an opportunity to question my learning and developing it further (Maclean, 2010) so that it will help with future practice. Although the definition of relationship-based practice cannot be easily explained, Hollis (1964) simplifies it as “closely related to and builds in psychosocial approaches to practice and the psychodynamically informed case-work tradition.” Furthermore, two communication skills that I demonstrated during the intervention; empathy and listening skills, will be evaluated.
Despite the fact that these two notions seem to be identical, assimilation involves the adaptation of the language, practices, and beliefs of an individual cultural group while accommodation entails the process of adjusting to the cultural norms of a particular group. Thus, the immigrant and refugee families have to go through the both processes to ingrain in the unfamiliar cultural environment. Certainly, when working with these families, the educators should consider the differences in their beliefs, traditions, and customs to maintain a productive partnership. The success of such cooperation achieved through the constant oral communication and the same cultural background of parents and the staff (De Gioia, 2009). To obtain a fruitful partnership, the educators have to be sensitive and support family values and move beyond the «circle of misunderstanding» (De Gioia, 2013).
Both theories focus on the family as a unit and how their influence contributes to the success of the individual. By using these theories when working with the family will help everyone to be a support system for the other which aids in coping with their current changes. The difference between the both will complement the nursing process as it helps to give a full evaluation of the nursing unit. Focusing on the strength of the family stress theory will “analysis how families experience and cope with stressful events [where as the transition theory will help the nurse to] understand and predict the transitions families experience over time by combining role theory, family development theory and life course theory” (Kaakinen, 2015, p.70). Family
Certain members of the Hispanic population perceive challenges as surmountable tasks that should include the input of family members and that is to include extended family (Falicov, 2014). When it comes to problems such as substance abuse, acculturation, and mental illnesses, family members of those suffering from the aforementioned issues may conquer it by attending therapy or by using methods of self-efficacy such as prayer, seeing a spiritualist, or consulting a priest/or member of the clergy (Falicov, 2014). The primary factors used by Latino families to combat the beforementioned challenges whether through a formal or informal method would be to do so as a collective unit. To combat the language and cultural barriers that may be present when Hispanics consult the assistance of a member outside of their ethnic group, it would be beneficial to work with an individual familiar with their cultural norms and expectations.
Family Therapy Theory Bekka Burlingame Michigan State University Family Therapy Theory Theoretical Review of Bowen Therapy Bowen Family Therapy began as research into relationships between mothers and their schizophrenic children using psychoanalytic theory in the late 1940’s (Denay, 2017). Murray Brown based his therapy on both individuality and togetherness, with a goal of differentiation of self (Nichols, 2013). Bowen Therapy views the entire family as one emotional unit, where each member’s emotional reactivity is dependent on the other family members (The Bowen Center, 2017). There are 8 concepts that make up Bowen Family Therapy and they will be discussed in the following sections. Triangulation is the first concept and is driven
As a result of evolutionary psychology’s scientific importance, insights have been given into areas that have functioned outside of evolutionary sciences. It has been suggested that personality characteristics like low emotional stability and low empathy have a damaging effect on ones mating success. Furthermore this effect is more significant when such personality features rise to dangerous levels and are categorised as personality disorders. Evolutionary theories have been used to explain the increased frequency of such maladaptive traits. Thus this study adds to the importance of the models contribution by hypothesising that in familial cultures there was poor selection pressures on personality characteristics that predict success in intimate relationships.
Secondly, establishing a safe place for all family members, map out the boundaries, determine who is the hierarchy in the family structure by evaluating and assessing the family, and transform the structure by diminishing the signs/indicators identified in the assessment with intervention methods. The key concepts of structural family therapy include family rules, sustain homeostasis, compose healthy relationships and principles, by examining the cover or overt rules that govern the family. Furthermore, instill the pattern/function within the family to address challenges head-on without chaos and dysfunction, to join the family system and understand the symmetrical relationships, while recovery of an individual
The main goal of Bowen’s family systems theory is to study human behavior in relation to their family interactions. It is a scientific way of studying the eight concepts that comprises the theory. Bowen’s research is based on elaborate study of the development of schizophrenia where the mother and child relationship are crucial (Hall, 2016). Bowen views the family as an interconnected unit consisting of complex relationships and it influences an individual’s behavior and thinking process. Months of intense research with schizophrenic patients and family members, made him realize that the interaction between family members was more strong and influential than what he imagined.

Do you think those English lessons would come in handy now? That is the message Cox gets out to the readers and she does an effective job of it by telling this story. Even though Stephanie is biased on the topic, she tries to present reasonable causes and a thorough analysis of why most minorities disagree with conforming to American cultures. The biggest reason for Hispanic parents is the sense of security they feel when remaining in their segregated communities of people who look like them and understand where they come from and the things they had to go through to get where they are now. The cold hearted truth is

The author adequately supports his argument because he uses statistics when evaluating how the goal of “serving 112,500” families can help them fight against the emotional and psychological results of abuse. The sources Garrett uses are reliable because he quotes Madeline McClure who is head of the commission’s work group at TexProtects and the District Judge Robin Sage of Longview who is the commission’s chairwoman. Garrett knows how much money is needed to fund abuse programs, so advising that cities with few or no abuse records should be given the programs would be a fallacious reasoning. Garrett agrees that it is imperative to give innocent children the help they deserve from abuse by enforcing laws that will provide this prevention. Additionally, a change in social and in cultural behavior will result and will impact the way individuals view their
“Racism is still with us. But it is up to us to prepare our children for what they have to meet, and, hopefully, we shall overcome.”, (Rosa Parks). Based on the Constitution, equality in the American society is achievable. Many of the amendments support the idea of people being treated equal. Some people will say that equality isn’t achievable because they will have their own opinions that discriminate others.
