Within this particular counseling setting, the focus is on the interaction of the family members, and involves interventions that affect the entire family system (Henderson, 2016). The goal of this theory is to change the dysfunctional family patterns through a variety of arrangements, from individuals to group interaction. The Systems theory is organized in units made up of different parts, which is a circular, pattern which A causes B and B causes A (Henderson, 2016). Systems Family Theory viewed human nature in a positive perspective, which people are rational and have the ability to make choices (Henderson, 2016). Furthermore, the Family Systems Theory perceives behavior as directly relating to the individual position within the family. There are eight concepts that Bowen believed centered around the Family Systems Theory, many which reflect family boundaries and interactions. These concepts include, relationships between spouses, differentiation of self, triangles, nuclear family emotional system, family projection process, multigenerational transmission process, sibling position, emotional cutoffs, and emotional process in society (Henderson, 2016). Other core concept, determined by other theorist, revolves around centripetal and centrifugal which further describe the relationship styles within the families by looking inward, centripetal, as source of satisfaction; along with, centrifugal, looking outside for satisfaction (Henderson, 2016). In addition, another core concept is family projection process that refers to the transmission that causes symptoms in the child (Henderson, 2016).

To be honest, I have a hard time pulling anything from this movie that relates to me. I guess the Jewish people showed unconditional love for their family and their strong will not to change who they are and what they believe because someone different from them believes that they are unworthy. I grew up in a fairly large family since I am one of six children. My family is very close and I believe that we have this unconditional love for each other no matter how annoyed we get with each other. I try to instill this in my own children. I teach them that it is ok to have disagreement and to be different but you must respect those differences because that is what makes each and every one unique. It would be pretty boring if everyone in the world was the same. I also relate to the holding firm to very values and what you belief. I believe that who a person is and what they believe should not change just because someone doesn’t like them. I always tell my children to be a leader not a follower, set the example and make your own decisions based on what you feel is right. Don’t follow someone else example just because everyone else
