Family Systems and the Individual Child.
Wachtel, Ellen F.
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v13 n1 p15-25 Jan 1987
Notes that family therapists may focus on systematic aspects of problems, inadvertently neglecting children's individual issues. Presents ways in which family therapists make use of a psychodynamic understanding of the child's issues while continuing to employ brief, action-oriented intervention strategies. Crucial to the approach described is the devising of tasks which address the child's intrapsychic conflicts. (Author/KS)
