Sample text

Children in families that are enmeshed do not develop autonomy and may never achieve the sense of individuality and self-esteem needed to be successful in life. Likewise, those from disengaged families may become independent thinkers but may struggle with close relationships. The first may occur in ill children whose parents continue to hover too closely, not allowing them to assume age-appropriate responsibility for their own health. The second may be seen in well siblings who often do not give voice to their own needs and concerns because they do not want to burden their already overstressed parents (Sori & Biank, 2006).

Families need to be able to adapt their structures to developmental changes or adversity (Minuchin, 1974), and having a healthy family structure promotes resiliency in children (Klimes-Dougan & Kendziora, 2000). However, when a change in organization is called for, some families “dig in” and stubbornly stick to a system of roles and rules that are no longer functional (Minuchin & Fishman, 1981). For example, parents may try to apply the same rules to an adolescent that they did when the teen was in grade school.

And I want a positive support system, but until we fix it or get help for whatever is the problem with us it’s not going be right. Therapist: Rita, how do you see it? Does that sum it up pretty good, or do you have something to add? Rita: It sums it up. I don’t think she and I can fix our “conflict” until we each individually fix what is causing us to act the way that we do.
