Strategic Family Therapy of Avoidant Behavior.
Burgess, Thomas A.; Hinkle, J. Scott
Journal of Mental Health Counseling, v15 n2 p132-40 Apr 1993
Notes that Millon's biopsychosocial model asserts that socioenvironmental factors of parental or peer rejection may shape development of avoidant behavior but does not elaborate on how family system may perpetuate its existence once disorder has evolved. Presents brief overview of avoidant behavior and strategic family therapy case study. Discusses identified patient's symptoms, family dynamics, and paradoxical interventions. (Author/NB)
