Approaches to Family Therapy pdf free download. Marital and family treatment can be defined as a professionally organized attempt to produce beneficial changes in a disturbed marital or family unit by using essentially interactional, nonpharmacological methods.
Its aim is the establishment of more satisfying ways of living for the entire family and for individual family members. Family therapy is distinguished from other psychotherapies by its conceptual focus on the family system as a whole. Major emphasis is placed on
acknowledging that individual behavior patterns arise from, and inevitably feed back into, the complicated matrix of the general family system. Beneficial alterations in the larger marital and family unit will therefore have positive consequences for the individual members, as well as for the larger systems themselves. The major emphasis is placed upon understanding and intervening in the family system’s current patterns of interaction; the origins and development of these patterns of interaction usually receive only secondary interest.
