Family therapy deals with problems with a family functioning as a system. The image is much like that of a on of the body systems, ie. blood or nervous systems. Every family has certain tasks and family therapy deals with the problems that can surface when parts of a family are not operating as a functional system. There are many variables in a functional family, however,dysfunction in one variable will affect the entire family.
