Assessment and Intervention Focusing upon Specific Styles of Family Interaction.
McPherson, Sigrid R.
This report describes a method of intensive, therapeutic assessment of families. The approach was developed as part of a research effort designed to study coping styles in adolescence. The various steps of the procedure are discussed both from the point of view of therapeutic value as well as from the point of view of findings obtained. A number of the consistently different ways in which families differ in interactional styles from each other when they were divided into four relatively homogeneous subgroups according to the adolescents' problem expression are described. The possible use of such typical patterns of dealing with each other as focal points for brief therapeutic intervention is mentioned. (Author)
