A systemic approach provides a clinical evaluation and treatment model focused on creating change in the social environment.  This perspective explore the multiple factors contributing to problem behaviors.  To understand one’s perspective we must first understand the multiple factors that influence us.  We begin by exploring one's relationships with self to understand what drives thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.  We then explore family patterns of interaction and explore specifically what constrains emotional growth and connection.  Systemic therapy also explores generational patterns influencing the family landscape and how the past is influencing the present.  The goal is to provide a clinician a framework for understanding emotional drivers for behavior and developing strategies to identify key leverage points on ones social environment that will sustain change.
