Communication in Families

Systems Analysis: Communication in Families

The pieces that make up such a system of communication are derived from the purpose of the family to establish the further growth of the individual and the understanding of one another in relation of how to interact with each other. In open communication, the singular member’s self worth would be primarily more important than power and performance, while each of the families individual’s actions would represent ones beliefs meaning that all the rules made relate to each other, and when change occurs it is welcomed by the family with it being thought of as normal, or even desirable. For the system to fully work together, it is brought about by the individual.

Confidence is needed to make the right actions, and choices in life. When an individual has the confidence to believe in him or herself, they respect the value of their self worth high enough to share emotions with their fellow family members, and even personal identity. Belief in oneself, may only flourish if the want of power and control over life is put aside instead for the knowledge and purity of true self-acceptance. The simple connection between loved ones is truly at it’s closest when each member feels their need to be accepted is satisfied by full partnership in the family system. When each individual of the family feels safe and secure enough to share themselves with each other, then open communication may begin. These actions then lead to each member knowing that mutual respect is the driving force behind the actions of everyone in the family unit.
