Strategic Family Intervention: Three Cases of School-Aged Children
Jane Close Conoley
ABSTRACT: Three cases of school-aged children experiencing problems in peer relations,disturbing habits, school refusal, and inappropriate classroom behaviors are presented. Interventions in each of the cases involved both standard school-based strategies and family interventions. The family interventions reflected aspects of strategic family therapy approaches. Although the case study methodologies did not permit rigorous experimental control, results suggest the potential usefulness of strategic family interventions. The strategic family approach is presented and critiqued for school practice.
