Creating Therapeutic Realities via Responsibility Messages.
Brown-Standridge, Marcia D.
American Journal of Family Therapy, v15 n3 p206-24 Fall 1987
Proposes that operating from an ecosystemic epistemology does not preclude family therapists from focusing on individual responsibility of each family member. Suggests examining the family's pattern of distributing responsibility and mapping how this perpetuates the presenting problem. Presents examples from therapy illustrating interventions to encourage individual responsibility while being mindful of transactional patterns in the system. (Author/KS)
