A dysfunctional family is defined as one that is consistently unable to provide a safe and nurturing environment. Through its maladaptive behaviours, this model of family develops a set of restrictions that inhibit the social and emotional growth of its members.
The healthy family, on the other hand, provides safety and nurturing for its members and assists them in their development by setting firm but reasonable limits.
This course will be invaluable to any counsellor interested in this field, and explores dysfunction and the therapeutic process of recovery.
