NRNP 6650 DQ Family Assessment and Phases of Family Therapy

A family's patterns of behavior influences [sic] the individual and therefore may need to be
a part of the treatment plan. In marriage and family therapy, the unit of treatment isn't
just the person – even if only a single person is interviewed – it is the set of relationships in
which the person is imbedded.
—American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy, “About Marriage and Family
Therapists”
When issues arise within a family unit, the family often presents with one member
identified as the “problem.” However, you will frequently find that the issue is not
necessarily the “problem client,” but rather dysfunctional family patterns and
relationships. To better understand such patterns and relationships and develop a family
treatment plan, it is essential that the practitioner appropriately assess all family members.
This requires you to have a strong foundation in family assessment and therapy.
This week, as you explore family assessment and therapy, you assess client families
presenting for psychotherapy.
