From the Paper:

"Being from Africa, the family is a core value of culture for me and provides great meaning in my life. Family Systems therapy and different theoretical approaches are based on the assumption that a family constitutes a specific system in which member interactions are shaped and informed by beliefs, values and roles that are adopted or assumed by individual members. Family therapy is a form of psychotherapy that involves all the members of a nuclear or extended family."
