A child 's poor schoolwork may be a cry for help in family relationships. If the family 's request for help is ignored, the school may be left with a refractory educational problem and an angry child who may continue to fail until someone finally gets the message. In most instances, when children fail in school, some form of family therapy is warranted. The goal of family therapy is to change structures and processes in the family or in its environment so as to relieve existing strains. 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.

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.

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
The degree of anxiety in this family can be determined by the current levels of external stress and the sensitivities to particular themes that are transmitted through the generations. If the family members cannot think through their responses to relationship dilemmas, a state of chronic anxiety may be set in place. According to Brown (1999. ), the primary goal of family systems therapy is to reduce constant tension by enabling knowledge and awareness of how the emotional system functions; and by improving levels of differentiation, where the aim is to make changes for the self rather than on trying to change others. As per Richardson, Gilleard, Lieberman, and Peeler (1994), The short-term goal is to foster better relationships between family members of the different generations by understanding the family system with its rules and balances of power and to mobilize the system by reconstruing these rules and having the family observe its own

Maureen Samms-Vaughan’s article “Children Caught in the Crossfire” sends a very sensitive message to the families out there. The title encompasses the whole issue presented in the article. Vaughan creates a forum for families undergoing this issue, as well as for other families out there, to be educated about the severe consequences that the change in family structures have on children. Vaughan introduces her message by beginning with the thesis statement, “The change in family structure that children experience during their lives are not without consequences.” Even though the thesis would have been much more effective at the end of her introduction, it still helped to pave a path for the readers. As readers read the first line of her work,
Because the development of delinquency in youth is influenced by numerous factors, prevention efforts need to be comprehensive in scope. Prevention services may include activities such as substance abuse education and treatment, family counseling, youth mentoring, parenting education, educational support, and youth sheltering. Increasing availability and use of family planning services, including education and contraceptives helps to reduce unintended pregnancy and unwanted births, which are risk factors for delinquency . It has been noted that often interventions may leave at-risk children worse off then if there had never been an intervention. This is due primarily to the fact that placing large groups of at risk children together only propagates delinquent or violent behavior.

Referring to ecological systems theory (in Chapter One), explain why parents of children with genetic disorders often experience increased stress. What factors, within and beyond the family, can help these parents support their children’s development? Be sure to include in your response information from the textbook or other psychology-specific sources. Parents of children with genetic disorders often experience increased stress because, based on Urie Bronfenbrenners’ ecological system theory, a child’s social and physical attributes and capacities can affect adult’s behavior, (Berk, L., 2014). According to this theory, parents of a child with a genetic disorder are more likely to be more impatient because of the behavior the child may have.
Nursing assessment and Intervention People with a learning disability have complex health needs and they are also likely to have incontinence problems (Drennan et al., 2013).
