Final Answer

Please see attached. Hope you like! Im getting my masters in Marriage and Family therapy so these questions were very easy for me. For number 2, there is so much to talk about and so much research, but I tried to make it as brief as I could. A lot of what I wrote is from memory, but I did make sure to get reliable sources online that talk about it as well. Please let me know if you have any questions. :)

1. What types of client problems are best suited for structural family therapy?
Explain.
Structural Family Therapy is concerned about how families are organized, and the rules
that direct their transactions. According to this approach, family problems are sustained
by dysfunctional family structures. Families are organized in subsystems with boundaries
regulating the way the members interact with each other. SFT recognizes that families are
capable to solve their own problems. SFT works best for troubling families who
experience conflict. In SFT, once learning about the family dynamics, parenting styles
may need to be adjusted and family interaction may need to be attuned.
