Family systems theory emphasizes the importance of examining the family as a whole rather than focusing on different parts of the family system. Many researchers use family systems theory as a framework for their studies, yet the focus is often on dyads within the family or how dyadic relationships influence development. The purpose of our symposium is to examine how family members’ (mothers, fathers, and two adolescent siblings) relationships with one another and experiences have an impact on the individual and the family as a whole, and the stability of relationships over time.
To use advanced statistical methods to understand the relationships and experiences of multiple family members.To analyze how family members’ relationships with one another change over time.To demonstrate associations between family-level relationships and experiences and both individual and family-level adjustment.
