Family structural theory is the philosophy which determines
the hierarchical standard of which family constructs to maintain its social
structure and the frame work which indicates bio- technical way of order”.
Family structure are ways family operates and interact with
each other. Sometimes, the behaviors exhibits by adults are from childhood
experience and upbringing. For instance children brought up in an environment
that makes them feel worthwhile and valuable grew up to form a healthy and
happy relationship, while children brought up in an unhappy, and hustle family
grew up to form unsatisfying relationship as adult.
“Dysfunctional family is one which the relationship between
the parents and children are strained and unnatural”(Mudrashram institute of
spiritual studies, website, n.d). While a functional family is where there is peace,
happiness, trust, and supportive relationship between parents and children.
A dysfunctional or functional family can be identified by the nurse either through covert or overt
observation and this can be noted through actions, words, and attitude of
family members during hospital stay or home visit to assess and provide care to a patient.
Dr Janet Kizzar characterizes four types of” troubled family system” which are breeding ground
for codependency. And they are –
( 1) The alcoholic or chemically dependent family system.
(2) The emotional or psychological disturbed family system.
(3) The physically or sexually abusing family system.
(4) The religious fundamentalist or rigidly dogmatic family system
When one or more of these characteristic are noted in a family, that
family will be described as a dysfunctional, and when opposite of these characteristic are noted in a family
, that family will be described as a functional family.
