My own life lived is my best guide for others
- Provided I am living out a life that is:
--Spiritually on target
-I cannot have unfinished business and open wounds
Many of us suffer from a deep-seated low self-esteem and are walking around with the constant fear that someday someone will unmask the illusion and show that we are not as smart, as good, or as loveable as the world was made to believe.
I will not see what I am blind to in my own life.
He or she who can cry out with those in need can give without offense
Those who are not afraid to hold a hand in gratitude, to shed tears in gried, and to let a sigh of distress arise straight from the heart, can break through paralyzing boundaries and witness the birth of a new fellowships of the broken
The participation in the pain, the solidarity in suffering the sharing in the experience of brokenness.
What is dominant?

It is not about the 1, 2, 3's of how to help someone
- knowledge (factual information) is important but not sufficient in and of its self
I can know a lot of stuff and still not know how to help
Being Made Holy (Hebrews 10:14)
It needs to make sense to me
I need to be living a process of life that works
I need to be evidencing the fruit of the Spirit in my life:

Different than complaing
Global compaints are criticism
Antidote to criticism is complaint

Antidote: Create a culture of apprectiation
Attribution of positive motive
It is an understandable response
It doesn't work
Fundamental attribution error
-I'm okay you're defective
It is denying responsiblity for even a peice of the problem
Partner does not back down or apologize
Defending ends up blaming the other
Antidote: Accept responsiblity

Leaving the room
Antidote: self soothing
Predictors of Stonewalling
Elevated heart rate
Majority of the time it is men that stonewall (83%)
Not good problem solving state
Failed Repair Attempts
Couples who have good relationships also have these problems, just less often
Must human communication is miscommunication
-mother/infant seventy percent miscommunication
If mother is repairing within 3 months infant will be stable and secure
If not attachment disorder issues
Difference is that they (stable marriages) have more attempts or repairing the failures of relationship
-and have attemtps even in the memnts of the argument
Positive vs. negative
In marriages headed for divorce there are slightly move negative than positives
In marriages that are stable the ratio of postivies to negatives is 5 to 1 while the conflict is going on
It is 20 to 1 when there is no conflict going on
There is not an absence of negative emotion
Marriages headed for divorce do not see 50% of positives that go on
Rewriting the past

Describe what is happening, don't evaluate or judge
Don't store things up

General Systems Theory
Includes the narrower field of family systems, is a cross disciplinary body of scientific thought that developed during the 20th century
First proposed by Ludwig von Bertalanffy in the 1940s (based on cell biology research)
Many scientific disciplines use systems theory in research and theory development
It is not actually a theory but a rather high level abstaraction: " a working hypothesis, the main function of which is to provide a theoretical model for explaining, predicting, and controlling phenomenon."
What is a System?
A group of interacting, interrelated, or interdependent elements or parts that function together as a whole to accomplish a goal
Large systems contain many sub-systems
Earth is a subsystem of our solar system, which is a subsystem of the milky way galaxy, which is a sub system of the universe.
Composed of persons or groups of persons who interact and mutually influence each other's behavior
A family system is a bounded set of interrelated activities that together constitute a single entity
The limits of a system are define by boundaries
Boundaries give a system its focus and identity as distinct from other systems with which it interacts.
A systems environment is by definition outside the systems, boundaries
The life of a system is more than the sum of its member's activities
A system can be studies as a network of unique, interlocking, relationships, with identifiable structural and communications patterns
A system is adaptive and goal oriented or purposive
A change in one member of the system affects the nature of the system as a whole
Transactions or movements across system boundaries influence a systems functional capacity and internal structure as well as its ability to adapt.
Change from within or outside a system that moves the system to an imbalanced state will result in an attmept by the system to reestablish the balance (homeostatis)
Each entity whether large or small, complex, or simple
This term is borrowed from Greek language to express the idea that each entity is simultaneously a part and a whole.
A unit is made up of parts to which it is the whole (suprasystem) and at the same time is part of some larger whole (component)
What is central is that any system is by definition both part and whole
The system chosen to receive primary attention
Identifies the perspective from which the observer views, and analyzes the system and its envrionment
The idea of hoon then requires the observer to attend to both the components of that focal system and suprasystem (significant environment) to fully understand it.
Information about the result of a transformation or an action that is sent back to the beginning of a system in the from of input
If this new information facilities and accelratesthe transformation of input in the same direction as the previous results, it is positive feedback and the effects are cumulative, if the new information produces a result in the opposite direction of previous results, it is negative feedback and the effects stablilize the system.
Usefulness of Systems Thoery
It focuses attention on the vast and diverse factors that influence even the most simple human behavior
It highlights the role played by different systems in facilitating or inhibiting behavioral change
It cautions against the application of linear solutions to complext systems problems
It is perhaps the only theory that is non reductionistic
It allows for the recognition that systems can change and adapt to their environment
-This is done by constant exchange of energy from without and within the system and continuous reorganization into more complex forms (morphogenesis).
A primary factor in whether a specific system will be adaptive or not is its openness.
Systems theory has been valuable in indicating that change, in order to be fully effective, must occur on muliptle system levels simultaneously
It has been especially useful in development of family family therapy approaches.
Have more permeable boundaries
Have constant active interchange of energy with their environment
Experience constant significant strains on their structure
Are capable of increasing differentitaiotn and/or number and types of roles
Provide potential for individuation and development
Have dynamic interplay of subsystems
Tend to maintain a reservoir of alternative ideas and behaviors.
Systems Theory Focus in Family Therapy
Communication and interaction between people affects every aspect of behavior
Despite all other factors, how people treat each other here-and-now significantly affects how they function for better or worse
In any durable relationship, patterns of interaction develop and persist because of reciprocal reinforcement
Although such interactions occur in all social organizations it is especially important in the famil
When a "problem" arises and persists that is seriously distressing, it is because other behavior must be occurring that provokes and maintains the problem behavior or something is constraining the system from changing
The resolution of a problems requires an appropriate change of behavior in the system or a change in evaluation of the behavior.
Using the mind to recognize pattern, conceive unity, and form some coherent wholeness- to see to complete the picture
