Social Practitioners and Families: A Systemic Perspective
Suissa, Amnon Jacob
Journal of Family Social Work, v8 n4 p1-28 2004
Given the wide range of possible interactions between families and social practitioners, communication problems, although undesirable, are to some extent unavoidable. How to preserve the social practitioner's mental health while being able to accompany the family members toward a psychosocial change in the helping process? How to pass from a logic of control to a logic of collaboration? To these basic questions, and through a psychosocial analysis with a systemic grid, the author suggests some intervention markers leading to activate the therapeutic process. Insofar as intervention is, above all, a meeting of two psychosocial systems, some basic tools for social empowerment of family members in the intervention process are suggested.
