Intervention or “tool” that a structural therapist might use. For the second part of your work, you will reflect on the same questions as above, but rather than focusing on what you thought, you will put on structural “glasses” and consider what a structural therapist might explore. (Note: You may need to review the readings from the week on structural family therapy).
Reflect on the following questions, which will make up Part Two of your work:
1) From a structural perspective, what is a “presenting problem” in this scenario? Why do you think structural therapists would label this as the problem?
2) How would a structural therapist define how this couple’s “system” is working and how the man and the woman in this example that play a role in how the problem got to be as big as it is?
3) What do you think a structural therapist might notice or hear about as the therapist talks to the couple that they might define as “context” to the problem (e.g., client’s background, race, religion, and other cultural differences?)
4) If a structural therapist had to identify one direction for this couple, what might be one goal for future therapeutic work according to the structural model?
5) What is one intervention or “tool” that a structural therapist might use as a guide to help them reach that goal?
Please also provide a brief summary of any notable similarities or differences in these two.
