Family Therapy and the School System.
This paper addresses the task of the family therapist who is called upon when remediation attempts between school and family fail to produce favorable results with a child identified as a problem pupil. The job of the therapist in dismantling the system that is detrimental to the child and reorganizing one that enhances development is discussed along with problems that are likely to be faced. A therapy strategy is outlined which is divided into four basic sections, including work with: (1) the child; (2) the family; (3) the school; and (4) the teacher-parent group meeting. For each of these areas, several suggestions and guidelines are enumerated and discussed. (NRB)
