Abstract

Recent empirical outcome literature on family therapy is reviewed with special attention to the link among presenting symptom, assessment of system dynamics and effective outcome. The authors recommend that future researchers include a focus on underlying system dynamics in addition to the more frequent focus on symptom. Finally, a research design is offered which links symptom via functional system consequence to family process and to therapy outcome.
