Avoiding a Common Pitfall in Compulsory School Referrals.
Colapinto, Jorge
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v14 n1 p89-96 Jan 1988
Notes that when a family is compulsorily referred by school for therapy, treatment failure can ensue if therapist ignores probability of family-school conflict and focuses prematurely on family dynamics. Presents alternative approach to such cases, based on questioning the "function of the symptom" notion, acknowledging parents' predicament, and conceptualizing therapy as development of better teamwork.
