We can view families as a type of system, because there are different “elements” of a family system (i.e., family members) with distinct behavioural patterns, roles and boundaries.

Family systems therapy proposes that an individual’s experiences within the family while growing up influence the way he or she functions in other relationships throughout life. By uncovering the dynamics within the family of origin, clients can resolve problem and develop different ways of relating.

Family systems therapy can be useful in helping to resolve relationship disputes, childhood and parenting issues, separation or divorce situations, and communication difficulties in families.
