Systems Theory

Systems Theory is built on the principle that people do not operate individually in the world, but as part of a system—usually a family; therefore one person’s change within the system affects the entire system. Unhealthy and dysfunctional patterns of interaction can be identified and then replaced with more effective and healthier ones. Also, identifying one's family interactions helps to explain interactions in other relationships and can ultimately lead to healthy behavioral changes.
