Psychodynamic FT

PCC-HR-6B-Psychodynamic Family Therapy

Person who first integrate psychoanalytic principles with systems theory Nathan Ackerman
Underlying assumptions a) Homeostasis; 2) Social roles; c) Role complementarity; d) Conflice
Homeostasis Allowing the family system to adapt in a controlled way to change; is dynamic rather than static.
Social roles Ackerman regards them as "semipermeable membranes" that allow interactions in both directions between the person and the environment.
Role complementarity They must allow for mutural support, dependence, and intimacy among familly members and allow family members to accommodate to new experiences.
Conflict While it can occur at any level (e.g., within an individual or between family memberms) it eventually affects the entire family system.
Mental illness consists of three components 1) intrapsychic, 2) interpersonal, and 3) psychosocial
Prejucicial scapegoating One family member is singled out and blamed for the family's problems, resulting in the adoption of specific roles by other family members
Goal is not merely to remove symptoms or to adjust personality to the environment, but to create a new way of living.
Techniques The process takes place in stages and requires the therapist to adopt a wide range of roles including activator, challenger, confronter, supporter, interpreter, and integrator.
