Transforming Family Systems Using Structural Family Therapy


The purpose of this discussion is to describe techniques of the Structural therapy model, and its application to Hispanic families.


After having watched the Structural Family Therapy Video at right, answer the following:

  • Dr. Bitter is working with a somewhat larger family in this video. From a structural point of view, does the family seem enmeshed, disengaged or appropriately aligned?
  • What was Dr. Bitter trying to achieve when he asked the family members to change places? How do you think this worked?
  • How do you think this technique works when working with Hispanic families? Can you suggest any modifications?
