Although it isn't often considered from this perspective, I think of the modern family as a microcosm of diversity more or less inclined to include, validate and provide emotional safety for each one of its members. Consequently, the work I do often focuses on what diversity means and how it is experienced within specific family systems. Simple questions such as "Do you feel safe?", "Do you feel accepted as who you are?", "What are the similarities and what are the differences you experience?", "How does this family communicate?" often generate a lot of information on how families function as a source of individual wellbeing and/or dysfunction and thus create opportunities for change.
