If further breakdown occurs, social processes will take place, whereby friends and family will offer advice and support. After having left the relationship, grave-dressing processes will commence. Partners strive to construct a representation of the relationship that does not paint their own contribution to the relationship unfavourably. This process often involves emotional distress. In the final resurrection process, each partner prepares for new relationships by learning from the mistakes of the prior relationship.
Many single parents are looking to have someone in their lives as a help-mate, protector, nurturer and provider to their family. In section one of the book, Ron Deal provides great insight and wisdom as to God’s divine plan for marriage, dating, remarriage and sex. He gives valuable information on when a relationship may be detrimental to the children, as well as, how it can be an endorsement to all involved. Also, he discusses the single parent’s readiness or non-readiness to begin to date again. In the book, Ron Deal makes a strong comparison of divorce and experiencing death noting that they both may take many years to overcome.
People who are able to deal with family issues, learn from past mistakes, keep hope alive, and realize that death is not the answer are able to have a new beginning and essentially have the life they desire. A family is supposed to help with problems, not create them. A family is supposed to make a person feel loved and accepted, but sometimes a person can feel as if their family is their worst enemy. When Henry is arguing with his father after their war he says, “I have no mother. Get it through your head.
Since thoughts play a role in behavior, Christopher’s mother’s feelings of inadequacy could come from depression. In the story, Christopher equates his mother’s depression medication to helping to “stop her from feeling sad “(Haddon, 2003, p. 216). With cognitive behavioral therapy, Judy could learn to change how she deals with her son’s behavior by learning to identify and change her thought patterns. Using this type of therapy would help her reflect on her behavior and allow her to see that using the strategies provided by cognitive behavioral therapy, can help her to cope with her son’s disability in a positive, healthy, manner. Person Centered therapy provides a supportive, non-judgmental environment that places clients in control of their therapeutic process while the therapist offers positive unconditional support throughout their therapy.
As parents we encourage our children to become independent and when they do, we feel lost and normally do not really want to let go. We miss instructing them, their dependency and being a guiding force. And if anyone felt the way I did when our son left home, “what do I do now?” It took me longer to recover than it did with our daughter and honestly I have not fully recuperated from the separation. But I did recognize that it is a normal reaction to be sad when your child leaves home and even go into their room and sit there for a while, just do not allow depression to set in. This is also a happy moment, now you have the opportunity to see the revealing of what you have taught your child come to fruition.
However, by the end of the novel she is making an effort to take control over her emotions: she sees a doctor and receives medication for her depression, and attempts to be patient in dealing with Christopher. Similarly, Christopher’s father vows to regain Christopher’s trust by always being truthful, and Christopher himself, by making the journey to London, shows that he is able to overcome some aspect of his condition. Each of these characters tries to take control of their ‘behavioural problems’ in order to rebuild relationships that are important to them. Judy Boone, Christopher’s mother believes she is incapable of change when she writes this in the second letter that Christopher discovers. She is trying to explain to her son some months after leaving her husband and Christopher that she is not a very good mother.
Experiential Family Systems Therapy also identifies the importance of teaching families how to encourage and support one anothers individualism. During therapy a therapist must be genuine, collaborative, and rely less on techniques and more on their own awarenss (Berdondini, et, at., 2012). Multipgenerational Family Therapy is another theraputic treatment within the Family Systems theory, it investigates and identifies generalional roles in a family system. Murray Bowen, the founder of this therapy, identifies that emotional distress is often passed through generations (Corey, 2017).

I liked to look at teachers when they were teaching in the class and day dreamed I would become a teacher one day too. In year 2001, I spent my time after PMR in hospital to take care of my grandmother. That was the first time I stayed in hospital and I saw how nurses and doctors were working. Those nurses impressed me a lot. Because of the event, I joined the Red Crescent society in school and learned some first aid skills.
For instance, if communication is an issue, this can be addressed with family therapy, and the entire family should begin to understand what their expectations are and how to improve communication. Of course, marital conflict and substance abuse affect everyone in the family, so it stands to reason that family therapy would very likely be the best way to go in such cases. Other issues, such as a child having school phobia or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) – as in the case with my son - should be addressed with family therapy.
