Family issues take the form of two different focuses. One's current family and one's Family of Origin.
Secondly, the focus of family issues can be on one's "family of origin."
"The human family displays the characteristics of a living system.
The unit is flexible and fluid. For the family, the question is not whether individuals respond to one another, but how they respond."
"The implications of such a view are far-reaching.
Behaviour may not be the only product of relationship. The health of each family member may be directly related to the functional state of the family unit."
                                                                                                                        ~ Dr. Dan Papero
  "It's as if family members are living under the same emotional skin."
                                                                                                               ~ Murray Bowen M.D.
