Overview: Watch a movie that portrays a family with dysfunctional dynamics.
Conduct a multigenerational family assessment using the 17 categories
Some suggestions are:
Hannah & Her Sisters (1986)
The Kids are Alright (2001)
Little Miss Sunshine (2006)
On Golden Pond (1982)
Ordinary People (1980)
A River Runs Through It (1992)
The Squid and the Whale (2005)
Stories We Tell (2013)
a. Introduction: Write a brief narrative that describes the family. Be sure to include key members, ethnic/cultural/racial/gender characteristics, other individuals or systems that impact the family, and primary issue/concern (e.g., divorce, death, adolescent rebellion, alcoholism, etc.). Your reader should be able to form a clear picture of the family without watching the movie.
b. Assessment: Write a narrative that includes all of the important aspects of a thorough assessment (e.g., differentiation, multigenerational transmission, emotional atmosphere, etc.). Refer to this week’s presentation for a complete list of categories. Be sure to describe each aspect assessed. In other words, provide a detailed description; not just a yes or no response to questions.
c. Conceptualization of the problem (case formulation): Provide a family systems explanation for the family’s distress. Be sure to include a detailed explanation of the family’s dysfunction, causative factors, and their understanding of the problem.
d. Facilitating change: Select one problem and provide an example of at least two interventions, reflective of the specific problems. For example, a disengaged family may benefit for a homework assignment of instructing each member to spend a minimum of 1 hour with each other family member and learn about his/her/they interests. Each child is to learn something about each parent’s interests, and each parent is to learn something about each child’s interest.
