Apply the Structural Family Therapy Model

The assignment for this week involves applying the assessment concepts from the Structural Family Therapy model to a family portrayed in a video. The focus is NOT on the video and providing a synopsis of it. It IS on the application of the concepts of this model to the family dynamics portrayed in the movie.

Step 1:  Read the material this week on the Structural Model. Focus on understanding the basic concepts and how they apply to the work of an MFT.

Step 2: Watch the video, Unfolding the Laundry with Salvador Minuchin.

Step 3: Analyze the family dynamics portrayed in the video, and discuss how Minuchin worked with the family from a structural perspective. Then, write a brief essay where you define and illustrate the following concepts:

Boundaries
Hierarchies
Subsystems
Coalitions
Strengths
Stages of development
To illustrate these concepts using examples from the video, you should briefly summarize some interactions between Minuchin and the clients so that it’s clear their interaction is showing one of the Structural concepts.

Step 4: Address how cultural/diversity concepts apply to the assessment of the family in this movie.

Step 5: Address what makes this model systemic. Reflect on the concepts from the systems-based approach and how they apply to the structural family therapy model.

Remember to avoid the tendency to provide a synopsis of the video and focus on providing a Structural Family Therapy assessment and a summary of the family dynamics portrayed in the video.

Support your assignment with at least three scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.
