The word family can encompass an array of different meanings for all of us on an individual level. For some, family is their immediate or extended. For others, it may be mixed or a handful of your closest friends. Whatever your definition of family is for you, it is a system. Similar to many systems, our families are made up of individuals who may share or differ in thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that are a product of the interpersonal relationships we have with one another. The individual roles that we play within our familial system impact the functioning of the system. For example, if a set of parents decide that they are going to get a divorce, that is going to impact the other members of that system. Another example, an adolescent is starting to want more time away from their family and spend more time with their peers. Both scenarios exemplify individually change is constantly happening. Sometimes the family seeks support to ensure a healthy functioning of the family system when the changes occur.
